Summer is here, classes are over (unless you are taking summer classes, bleh!) and the sun is out! While campus may seem quiet, there are still a lot of people here (a lot of international students too). Most of these students are working on research, have jobs and internships, or are maybe just staying and enjoying all that the Twin Cities area has to offer.

So what is there better to do in the "Land of 10'000 Lakes"? Go to a Lake of course!
The lakes have been thrown sand to resemble a beach and you cannot tell you are not by the sea until you see the skyscrapers in front of you. You can go for a swim, play beach volleyball or just read a book, and all of it minutes away from the Twin Cities. So if you are on campus and haven't gone to a lake yet, you know what to do this weekend.
