(Stand up)
With the spring semester at an end you would think Pullman would be a ghost town. But suprisingly enough enrollment for summer session is at it’s highest ever.

An estimated forty-seven hundred W-S-U students are currently enrolled in summer courses. Why the large number? Summers session director Linda Schoepflin says there could be many reasons.

[BITE OUTCUE=we have lots of sun here]
Granted, summer courses are more expensive than fall and spring courses at one-hundred and ninety five dollars a credit, but if your trying to graduate on time summer school is essential. Senior Monica Brown, majoring in MIS, is on her way to getting her degree in three years, without summer classes she says her goal would not be realistic.

[BITE OUTCUE=more laid back]
With the fourteen percent tuition hike this coming fall summer classes may not be a bad idea. With photographer Lareasa Bowman I’m Ken McGrath
