Alaina Ruppert, a graduate student in business administration, studies in the Bridge Lounge Tuesday afternoon at the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union. “I’m finishing up my master’s (degree) in a year, so summer classes are a great way to do that. I was here last summer, there’s a lot less people. It’s interesting, my classes are smaller too so that’s nice. You’re taking 16 weeks of material and cramming them into a few weeks so the classes are very intense, but it’s easier to connect.” Ruppert said.
