Sara Schuefften takes condensed summer courses at the University of Minnesota Duluth to get ahead in her schooling, but knows it might not be for everyone.

As talk circulates on changing the University of Minnesota academic calendar to one with equal weight to three semester-length terms, she offered her input.

“It should be a choice,” Schuefften said this week as she ate in Kirby Plaza with two of her sisters and a friend, who all attend UMD.

University officials say that offering a regular semester over the summer could be a way to allow students to get a degree in less than three years and fully use campus facilities. It’s being called year-round school that would offer classes more in line with those in the fall and spring terms.
