During the summer, UNC students that stay in Chapel Hill have the opportunity to engage with new jobs, internships and coursework.
Staff writer Akash Bhowmik asked students on campus how they have been staying productive this summer.
Ben Viljoen, sophomore
“This summer I've been taking summer courses. Summer Session I, I took chemistry and my chem lab for 102 and Summer Session II I'm just taking a history class to get a Gen Ed out of the way.”
“I make sure every morning I get up around the same time as my brother at about 8:30, and eat a good breakfast before I head to campus for class. Normally to keep me going through the day, after class I'll go to the gym or I'll try to get some sort of exercise by being outside because the weather's been quite nice recently. I actually work back in Cary, where my family lives, I'm a pharmacy technician. It's a bit of a drive, but I've worked there for about a year, so that's what I do in my free time as well.”
Jahnavi Hansaria, sophomore
“I'm doing research in a lab, it's breast cancer research.”
“I'm working out a lot, just exploring Chapel Hill — going on runs, seeing what there is I haven't seen yet, exploring cafes.”
