Woohoo! You’re done with this year and it’s time to kick back and enjoy the Summer break.
Your Summer calendar is probably rather busy, but maybe it’s time to stir things up a little bit? Come what may let’s vow that we will explore a lot of possibilities, places, and things that add up to our pleasant future.
Muster your sources, pool some friends, gather all the mettle and start compiling a ‘TO DO’ list this summer. We have made your life a little easy by doing the hard work and coming up with a list of likable things to do this summer.
Remember Marvel’s “Fantastic Four” where four youngsters gain unique superpowers after being teleported to an alternate universe. You getting superpowers seems fantastical, but keeping those fantasies aside you will definitely be supercharged by embracing these four cool summer getaways. We call them Fantastic Four and let’s see whether you can check them off.
Here are the Fantastic Four you can do this summer:
1) Mister Fantastic – Pick a Summer programme
Fantastic was a scientific genius and the leader of the group, who can stretch his body into incredible lengths and shapes. If you want to be like him and expand your learning outside the classroom, you can join a summer program. There are several summer programs offered by colleges these days. This is a great way to gain additional knowledge and get some professional experience.
One such programme that has piqued our interest is offered by OP Jindal Global University.
“The Aspire India Scholars Programme (AISP), Jindal Global Summer School (JGSS) aims at providing mentorship to students, where they get exposure to interdisciplinary curriculum and prepares them for highly competitive admission process for higher education, nationally and globally. The Aspire India Ambassadors will address our summer school students and share their challenges of transition from high school to higher education,” says C Raj Kumar, the Vice-Chancellor of the university.
2) Invisible Woman – Travel & Reflect
Invisible Woman can render herself invisible and later project powerful invisible force fields. You can also disappear to your favorite destinations on your bucket list and experience different cultures, cuisines, music and what not! The foreign language that you learned in school can be put to good use. Whether it is within your country or abroad, traveling is a great way to rejuvenate and yet experience life through a different lens. Don’t think too much about homestays and group treks. There’s someone to take care of them. Cox and Kings have come up with an educational tour especially for students, so you can explore your favorite destination this summer.
3) Human Torch – The Internship experience
Human Torch can generate flames, surround himself with them and fly. That’s too superhero-ish. However, you can achieve the feat by choosing a good internship. Interning at an organization is a great way to gain an all-round experience to start a flying career. As a high school student, you might not earn money, but that’s ok. The skills that you will develop during the process will help you in the long run. Alongside this, you will learn how the corporate world works and who knows, you might just find your calling! Browse websites such as Internshala to add fuel to your internship fire.
4) Thing – Volunteer for a good cause
Thing possesses tremendous superhuman strength, durability, and endurance due to the nature of his stone-like flesh. Why not divert all the Thing’s energy for doing something good to the society. You can look up a few causes that you can work for in your own city. This is your chance to give back to the community and contribute to not just the growth and improvement of people but also to make an impact. If you’re looking for places where you can volunteer and earn some goodies in return, then Volunteer India is one such place to be!
Volunteering India is a platform that offers a summer volunteer programme which is active not just during summer, but also during other months. So you’ve got your travel, internship, and volunteering, all covered under one umbrella.
Of course, there is a lot more you can do during the summer break. When you are planning your summer activity, remember to take the time to research well. Colleges like it when students involve themselves in doing things which they are passionate about and interested in. The bottom line is, you should embrace any of the “Fantastic Four” as a precursor that adds value to your college education.
