Rey Lascano, UTPB's director of continuing education, said he thinks it's important for students to have the opportunity to keep learning during the summer.
"Students have told me they go back to school feeling comfortable and ready to learn. They've already been working on some of these concepts over the summer so instead of struggling to understand and making bad grades or ending up in tutoring, these students already have a strong foundation, and they can focus on their school careers," Lascano said.

"Some of the students just weren't prepared for the work," UTPB continuing education director Rey Lascano said, so university officials looked at the numbers and decided to require students to prove they were ready for the work by showing their grades.
UTPB officials have had some concerns as well, Lascano said.
Lascano said UTPB officials decided to make this change after reviewing last semester's results and finding some students were either having problems using online courses or weren't keeping up with the required work in the classes. They decided to put class rank in as a way to make sure the students who choose to take the classes would be more likely to handle the work.
"We had to do a paradigm shift if we were going to be following college and career readiness standards," Lascano said.

This summer's Camp Falcon looks to bring back its regular athletic fixtures for this year's camp-goers, but it'll be "Camp Falcon with a little bit of a different twist," said Rey Lascano, UTPB's director of continuing education.
In addition to all the physical activities the camp is known for, Lascano said this summer's theme is "S.T.E.M," or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, with the well-known hovercraft project as the centerpiece.
Last year, students built one hovercraft using leaf blowers, whereas this year, Lascano said the teams will build three or four hovercrafts.
"It will encourage team building since there will be three or four teams competing, and S.T.E.M puts all of these things (science, technology, engineering and math) together," he said.
Building catapults will also be a part of the S.T.E.M project.
"They'll be engaged and concentrating on their teams while tying into a strong project, but it'll be fun at the same time," Lascano said.
Camp Falcon is intended to remind the community of what's available at UTPB, Lascano said. "We're like a little treasure," he said.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to learn and experience the Spanish language and the rich Mexican culture," UTPB Continuing Education Director Rey Lascano said.
"A typical weekday consists of Spanish classes that run in the morning.Students go to their residences for lunch and then return to school for late afternoon/early evening cultural and recreational activities," Lascano said.
Some of these cultural activities are done at the school, while others include field trips.
"The state of Chihuahua is rich with culture and rich in natural beauty dating back to the 16th century," Lascano noted.
"Chihuahua City has a presence of at least 40 countries, mostly European and Asian, and interaction with them makes it very interesting," Lascano said.
This program also allows participants opportunities to explore on their own.Students usually use the weekends for excursions to outlying tourist destinations.
"One weekend has included the entire group going to Mexico's world-famous Copper Canyon.In past years students have also gone to such places as Parral, Paquime (a World Heritage site), Colonia Juarez, Juan Mata Ortiz (home of world famous potter Juan Quesada) and Majalca National Park," Lascano said.
All students stay at private residences approved by the university and located near the campus in upscale neighborhoods.Each residence has a live-in landlady who cooks three meals a day.The meals include typical Mexican dishes, however, students are generally on their own on Sundays.
Cost is $566 to enroll for the class at UTPB and each individual has to provide their own spending money.Lascano suggested participants bring at least $250.
