Making friends, finding roommates and growing connections with other students is a major part of your four-year stay at any university. All the great memories and laughs you have with your new friends comes to a close each year as the semester ends and everyone parts ways for the summer.
But the fun times with your college friends do not have to end with the semester there are plenty of ways to keep in touch with one another until the fall semester.
Here are four ways to stay connected with your college buddies over the summer break.
Zoom happy hour
One of the best ways to stay in touch with your college friends is by having a weekly Zoom happy hour.
If you are 21+, loosen up over a few of your favorite cocktails and drinks and catch each other up on your week.
Attend summer concerts
Depending on COVID-19 coronavirus restrictions in your area, summer concerts can be a great reason to get back together with your friends and visit their hometown.
Pick out two concerts and buy tickets with your friends before you leave school at the end of the semester so you can have a good reason to see them.
Plan a camping trip
Pennsylvania is fantastic for camping with plenty of opportunities to go to waterfalls, lakes and parks throughout the state.
Whether it be a new experience or your friends are camping veterans, it is always an exciting way to bond and reconnect with each other and the outdoors.
Watch TV shows “together”
Start a new TV show series together and schedule to watch the same number of episodes each week.
After your all caught up you can text about the last episodes you watched and discuss your thoughts, opinions and future predictions of the show.
This is a great way to keep some interest in your conversation with your friends.
