The day after tomorrow marks the first day of May, the month that many students on the semester system get to officially call summer. For us, it’s only the middle of the quarter. There will surely be loads of bragging Facebook statuses and endless Instagram uploads with certain hashtags that we will claim are only used to make us quarter kids jealous. But the truth of the matter is, we don’t really have many reasons to be envious of students on the semester system. And because you probably still don’t believe us, here are four reminders of why the quarter system is so great. (more…)
