10 Things to Do Over Spring Break Besides Partying

Lifestyle / 7 months ago

For me, spring break was always my down time. I didn’t do extensive travel (besides my semester abroad) and I didn’t spend a lot of money. Sometimes, I even worked extra over spring break to save up some money. No, you don’t have to do that, but it’s an option.

 

There are so many great things you can use this week-or-so off for. My favorite of which being much needed rest and relaxation. Coming back from spring break has the same effect as coming back after Thanksgiving. You loved all that time off, but that’s not yet you’re reality. You still have a month or so left of classes (ugh) and…finals (UGH). So really enjoy this time while you can.
