20 Websites Every College Student Needs In Their Life So maybe last semester didn't go exactly as you had planned. You came back from summer vacation with glowing skin and all the best intentions. This was going to be the year, you said. You were going to focus on classes and get that GPA up to something Mom would be proud of. Unfortunately, good intentions only go so far.
