Giveaway: Enter Our #CXSummerFun Caption Contest!

Happy first day of summer! School is finally out, and you have two whole months to relax and decompress from all the stress of the semester.

As you can see, we’re getting into a few summer hijinks too. Can you really blame us for wanting to have a bit of fun in the sun? No one wants to be cooped up inside when the weather’s this nice. We even took this great picture, but we’re not sure what to call it—that’s where you come in!

Introducing the #CXSummerFun giveaway! Help us give a name to our wacky photo. We’re looking for some clever captions that really capture the essence of our summer fun. Give us your best caption and you’ll be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card and some CollegeXpress swag.
