HUNTER COLLEGE–Sanjida Tamim, a clinical psychology major at Hunter, planned to intern this summer with Norwell Health until March, when she missed an assignment deadline. She already wasn’t doing her best and realized she would have to apply for Credit/No Credit instead of getting a grade. Not getting credit for the class would mean she would have to take a summer course to stay on track with her current graduation plans.
“I really didn’t want to take a summer class this time around, because I always do. I kind of just wanted to do something different,” said Tamim, as she explained how horribly she felt about having to spend the summer in school. “None of my friends are taking summer classes this time around,” she said.
