UVa-Wise senior Andrew Chapman is graduating next month with a degree in biology and a minor in physics, and he says Summer College classes made it all happen on time.
Chapman reasoned early in his freshmen year that taking general education courses and other liberal arts electives during the two Summer College sessions would be less expensive and would give him more time to fully appreciate the subjects. And he soon discovered that having more time to spend on the classes that were not part of his major gave him a deeper appreciation of classes devoted to mystery novels, economics or German.
“Summer school allowed me to focus more exclusively during the regular semesters on my primary field of study,” the Big Stone Gap native said. “I was a better student because I had more time to comprehend.”
Summer College classes provided Chapman with a great way to pick up extra classes and to save money in the process.
“Being engaged in academic studies during the summer keeps you in shape,” he said. “There is a financial benefit because summer classes are less expensive. Our college is pretty reasonable financially, but why turn down a deal? You can learn something that you would not get to learn otherwise, and it’s cheaper. It’s a win-win.”
Chapman said he never sacrificed summer fun in the process. He spent his free time hiking and enjoying the beautiful Southwest Virginia mountains.
“In many ways, I learned more from my summer courses than I would have during the semester,” he added. “A regular semester can be more hectic. In the summer, you have more time to think about what you are learning, and you appreciate it more.”
The deeper appreciation leads to more understanding, he explained.
“The summer courses made me realize that I was not an expert on everything,” he said. “When you actually start to learn from the classes, you realize that things are more complex. You realize how beautifully dynamic the world is when the classes open your eyes.”
Summer College begins soon. To learn more, visit http://www.uvawise.edu/academics/summer-college/
