Not all holiday seasons are enjoyed by ITS students, some of them are still reluctant to leave their study routines, especially final year students who have to prepare thesis material for the next semester. Even other students who were not from the final level admitted that there were still many reports and tasks that had to be done so that they were still loyal to go out into the library even in the holiday season.

“In fact, I like the condition of the library like this, it’s very lonely, learning can be more focused and the collections available are very complete,” said Ikra Muhammad, one of the students from Civil Engineering.

Well, for those of you who are not burdened with the task and preparation of a thesis, you still have to be very clever to take advantage of your vacation. Do not arrive at the time of college, you will reincarnate new students who do not know “the direction of the wind”. During high school, usually, the odd semester is even given only 2-3 weeks off, while the lecture time is 1-1.5 months. Lots of entertainment imaginable will be done when the holidays start, such as playing games as much as you want, reading novels, watching movies, going out somewhere, or sleeping all day at home. But some people may be tired of doing it in the first 2-3 weeks. Reporting from Kompasiana.com, there are a number of things you can do during semester breaks. Besides being fun, surely the activities below can still make you do something useful:

  • Looking for scholarships, Entering the new semester, usually many companies will open opportunities to provide scholarships to students with certain criteria. The task is to find as much information as possible and fulfill all the requirements proposed
  • Preparing Items that You Need to Have for College, First of all, you need to make a list of the items in advance for college preparation.

  • Find out which books are needed for the next semester, this method can ask the seniors who have already passed the courses you will face in the next semester.
