come and broaden their literary horizons while meeting people who share their similar interests. Go to

Tips from the A-team
Consider Summer School
Consider spending your summer in Logan while taking summer school. There are many benefits to
taking summer classes. You can graduate earlier. If you are an out-of-state student, you can pay
resident tuition during the summer semester. Housing is generally much cheaper during the summer in
Logan (as low as $400 for the entire summer). Summer classes are condensed into four and eight week
sessions (or a one week workshop session) so you can complete some credits and still have a vacation.
And finally, Logan is beautiful during the summer months.

If you are interested in taking an online class this summer, check the online classes available from
Regional Campuses and Distance Education. To see online class listings, use the “class search” feature
in Access and select “USU Distance Education” for the campus. Classes that have meeting times and
locations as “TBA” are typically online classes. You can also search for online classes at
https://distance.usu.edu/coursefinder/index2.cfm. Remember that tuition for online classes through
RCDE is charged as a set dollar amount per credit, so each class will run you about $633.

Registration for summer semester starts on Monday, April 12 for all students.

Ongoing Events
Go to http://www.usu.edu/soar/update for a list of ongoing events, which will be listed here once
and then added to the website:

2010 Census
Since 2010 is a census year you will be hearing now and again about the importance of completing the
census, even though you are a student. Did you know?
    • The U.S. Census is only 10 questions long.
    •   Every person who fills out the census adds an extra 41,000 to their community budget.
    •   The information you provide will be kept completely confidential. The census bureau is required
        by law not to share information with anyone.
    •   Everyone is eligible to fill out the census. That includes college students, U.S. citizens, non-U.S.
        citizens and anyone else on U.S. soil.

Study Abroad in France this Summer
Live like a king in France and earn a minor in French in just one summer. Apply online for a faculty-led
study abroad in Paris/Annecy in July of 2010 at http://www.usu.edu/saforms. For more information,
contact christa.jones@usu.edu.

Free tax help is available through April 15, 2010.
VITA, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, is a program implemented through the statewide Earn It. Keep
It. Save It. Coalition made up of local community partners. The coalition works to recruit volunteers that
