On Campus Resources to Take Advantage of This Summer

June 22, 2018

Congratulations! You’ve made it to the end of another quarter. Summer is a revitalizing time many students take advantage of to complete their projects that have been put on the back burner during the busier months. Now that you have a more flexible schedule, utilize some of the many resources Drexel University's campus has to offer.

Utilize the campus library

Libraries are a wonderful place to visit regardless if you’re catching up on work or if you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Drexel’s campus is fortunate enough to be home to a beautiful, extensive library. We encourage you to visit the W. W. Hagerty Library during the summer months, where you’ll be rewarded with an abundance of resources to help you ace your summer classes or research your upcoming projects.

Not near campus during summer? Drexel has a vast online library where you’ll be able to reach everything you may need for a project.

Check out Third Thursdays

Entrepreneur Third Thursday is a great resource for all Close School students! Third Thursday is a program where students with incubating companies, or those interested in what Baiada has to offer, can gather and discuss any questions or concerns they might have. This is a great opportunity for students seeking advice on any obstacles they’re facing, or learning how to get their business off the ground.

A huge positive? No registration is required. The best way to prepare for a Third Thursday is to pack your lunch and brainstorm plenty of questions before attending.

Visit the computer lab

Although summertime is a great opportunity to relax, remember to take time to catch up on busy work. Fortunately, the tech lounge, a space where you can utilize computers and printers, as well as bring your own devices, is available during break. This will be especially useful if you’re taking any summer courses!

Meet with your advisor

Summer can be quiet for students who aren’t taking any classes, but your advisors are always working and are there to help year round. Their hours may be limited during the summer, but if you need guidance and academic advice, pay them a visit or shoot them an email. Your future is important (and bright!) and your concerns should not be put on hold due to being on break or in the middle of co-op.
