Mid-Semester Break is the most eagerly awaited activity. A semester break is a right time to take a break and unwind after a busy college routine. Usually, students return home during the semester break. Some go on picnics and travel for refreshing. But some just stay at the boarding house or rent it out, then sleep a lot and keep playing games. Many activities can be done to make the holidays more memorable besides going home or sleeping in the boarding house and playing games.
As a student of the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration, University of Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (IGOV UMY), several activities can be done to fill in the Mid Semester Break. The activities that can be carried out by IGOV UMY students are:
Improve Your Language Skills
Languages open up many possibilities. For example, networking internationally and discovering new career opportunities after graduation. However, you must speak the language frequently and persevere if you want to truly master it. Therefore, the Mid Semester Break is the ideal time to enroll in a course or try out a language app.
