Students weigh benefits of online summer courses - Jessica Steeley, State News

Although MSU is more relaxed in the summer, there are still professors teaching on campus and students doing homework and going to class. “One of the biggest differences with the summer course is it’s only seven weeks, opposed to 15 weeks in the other semesters, so everything is rushed,” doctoral student Julie Bell said. Computer science junior Alex Lambert agrees accelerated summer classes are tough; even though he’s only taking six credits, it can seem like 12. He said he does better in fall and spring classes as opposed to summer classes. However, Lambert takes them because it will allow him to graduate in three-and-a-half years and give him an easier senior year. “I’d rather take classes now, and then have an easier senior year, than have 20 credits senior year,” Lambert said.
