It is always easier to plan things when you know what you’re getting into. This YUBlog is here to tell you about what you need to consider while planning the upcoming Summer term.

The Summer term begins Monday, May 9. So, to start you off on the right track here is a guide to help you enroll and get prepared for the upcoming term.
