What to Do Over Spring Break

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Spring break is quickly approaching, and I couldn't be more excited to have the opportunity to just sit around and not have to worry about anything related to school. For those of you who still aren't sure how to spend your spring break this year, here are a few ideas to get you thinking that you can start planning right now!

1. Go on a volunteer trip.
A lot of organizations offer alternative spring break trips that give students the opportunity to spend their days away from school giving back to some amazing causes as well as still getting to enjoy their time off in places they've never been. Check to see if your college is offering any sort of trips this year that you can take part in!

2. Take a road (or day) trip.
A road trip with a few of your best friends is never a bad idea - it gives you all an awesome bonding experience and some wonderful memories to look back on! But if that's a bit too expensive or much for you, there's nothing wrong with day trips to places in your state that you've never been; that's what my roommates and I are planning to do this break!

3. Visit your family back home.
Spring break is one of the only times during the semester that you get to head back home for a significantly long period of time (yes, a week is a long break in college time). It's always nice to get to spend some quality time with them - and get a nice home cooked meal instead of eating out every night or having to go to the dining hall.

4. Make plans with friends.
Maybe you don't get to see your friends enough during the semester because you're too busy working hard for those straight A's, you have a job, or even both and some other third thing. Sort out your days that you want to spend with them and create some plans so you can get a dose of social back in your life.

5. Relax.
There's nothing wrong with just sitting around all day long and doing nothing but watching Netflix while stuffing your face with pizza and ice cream. Feel free to take some solo time to wind down, reflect, do what you personally want to do and really get a break from the rest of reality.

What are your plans for spring break this year?
Hope everyone has the most amazing time!
