Don't shriek in horror when I say that you should be thinking about summer plans.  No, not the laying on the beach type of summer plans, but the 'let's do something meaningful' experience.  There are many different approaches to cultivating a meaningful experience and it will certainly vary depending on who you are and what your goals are, but there are a few things to keep in mind. First of all, you should never participate in a summer experience because you think you should for college applications.  If it doesn't impress you, it won't impress anyone else.  If you are doing something to pad your extracurricular resume, it is probably also a bad idea.  

What can you do?  Well, the first step is to set up a time to talk to me and we can develop a plan specific for you where you will not only be involved in something this summer, but you can continue to grow in this area of passion.  You can also read this great article that recently ran in the New York Times - Does Helping Help You Out?
