How to Make the Most of Your Summer Break

Summer break is finally here! After months of lectures, exams, and assignments, it’s time to relax, have fun, and maybe even try something new. Whether you want to learn a cool skill, make some extra cash, or just chill out, summer is the perfect time to do it all. Here are some awesome ideas to help you make the most of your university holiday.

Get a Summer Job

Sure, working at a restaurant or bar is a classic student job, but why not mix it up this summer? Try something different like working on a farm, picking fruit, or helping out in a farm shop. It’s a great way to stay fit and meet new people. Plus, working outside all day will give you the best sleep ever!

Feeling extra adventurous? Look for jobs abroad! Imagine working on a French vineyard or an Italian olive farm. If that’s not your vibe, consider teaching English or being an au pair overseas. Not only will you earn money, but you’ll also get to experience a new culture.

Do a Sponsored Challenge for Charity

Combine your sense of adventure with a good cause by taking on a sponsored challenge. Think big: biking across Europe, hiking the highest peaks in the UK, visiting every stately home in Britain, or road-tripping across America. Add a quirky twist, like carrying a funny item with you, to make it even more memorable. Choose something you’re excited about, and have a blast while supporting a charity you care about.

Learn a Language

Why not spend your summer learning a new language in a different country? There are tons of programs that offer the perfect balance of lessons, sightseeing, and social activities. While European languages are popular, why not take on the challenge of learning Arabic or Mandarin? It’s a great way to boost your career prospects and immerse yourself in a new culture.

Relax and Recharge

Sometimes, the best summer plans involve no plans at all. After a hectic school year, you might just need to unwind, catch up on sleep, and spend time with friends. Dive into that stack of books you’ve been wanting to read or binge-watch your favourite shows.

Take some time to explore the area around your university. Chat with your Mezzino resident coordinator for tips on local attractions and fun things to do. Many Mezzino locations are open during the summer, so you can stay close to campus and make the most of your break.

No matter what you decide to do, make sure your summer break is filled with fun, relaxation, and maybe a little adventure. Enjoy every moment, you’ve earned it!
