For many businesses located around the colleges in Tallahassee, businesses struggle to make it through the summer semester.

"It's definitely been busier this summer than other summers. Other summers would be completely dead. This summer, not so much," says Chris Wilhelm of the All Saints Cafe on Railroad Avenue.
FAMU residence halls open back up for the fall semester on August 18, and Florida State students can move into residence halls on August 19.
Classes begin on August 28.
