VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Summer enrollment is up at Valdosta State University.

More than 5,600 students are taking classes this summer.

The school says some students are having trouble finding summer jobs, so they're signing up for more classes.

Students we talked to Friday are trying to catch up on their course work and graduate on time.

Others, like anthropology major Kathryn Thompson, say summer classes are just more laid back.

"I did a summer class my freshman year and I actually kind of liked the pace of it," said Thompson. "I guess the classes aren't as long and drawn out. I mean the hours are a little bit longer but you get the class finished much faster."

VSU officials estimate there's also a 4-percent increase in graduate students attending summer semester.
