So a pretty simple question, but I need to make sure. Are there such things like or close to a year round college? Does that even exist? If not, what type of college system do students have to remain most in the campus? Your input will be very appreciated!
Year round college?

Going to college year-round is pretty common, at least in the U.S.
Most colleges and universities offer summer sessions -- often these are condensed versions of semester courses. (That is, the same material is covered, but it is taught over a shorter period of time, so students usually have classes that meet more frequently and/or for longer periods of time each day in the summer. They thus usually take fewer courses at a time -- one or two rather than four or five, for example).
Many students elect to take courses in the summer in order to shorten the time they need to complete college; take extra course work; etc.

My college (which catered to boarding students) had 4 semesters: 12-week in the fall and spring, 6-week in the summer & winter (usually labs or intensives). There were breaks between each semester, with the summer session ending about a month before the fall session began. So, while it wasn't technically "year-round", it was pretty close.

At my college, even if you weren't taking classes year round, you still had opportunity to stay on campus during the summer by participating in alternative activities or work study.
