College is a place where some of the greatest friendships are started and unfortunately the four years seem to fly by faster than expected. When entering college it’s a whole new, different kind of adventure than before.
College is a time when young adults are allowed to embark on new adventures involving people they choose to put next to them.
Therefore, what better way to remember some of the greatest four years than going on a week-long spring break trip? It’s important to have at least one trip with college best friends.
There is an indescribable feeling while being away with a group of fun and memorable people. The only problem with this dream-like vacation is the cost.
Now that doesn’t mean there isn’t hope, there are endless opportunities for spring breakers that are cost effective.
Student travel website, Student City is one way to organize a trip that helps save money and helps with booking. For the most part college students are extremely busy, working part-time jobs, going to school and planning a trip almost seems unimaginable. With Student City one is able to book everything from flight and stay packages to destinations including Cancun, Panama City, Puerto Vallarta and more.
Can’t afford a trip to some of these locations? Don’t have a passport? No worries, how about the Oregon Coast, Vegas or a snowy spring break at a ski resort? The point of going on spring break isn’t spending endless amounts of cash. It is about being with the best people and doing as many activities as possible.
For some, college spring break has a bad name because it is usually associated with partying, which is fine if people want to go out and party all week they should be in the right to do so, as long as everyone in the group knows the buddy system and remembers that just because they are on a vacation alcohol poisoning and ending up in bad situations do occur. Be safe and smart while partying the night away.
However, if drinking and partying all night isn’t one’s cup of tea there are plenty of other ways to celebrate spring break. As stated before, a ski resort adventure leaves endless hours on the slopes, hot springs and cozy nights in the cabin with best friends. Also, the coast is another great opportunity. Who wouldn’t want to spend all day hiking and exploring beaches?
Senior psychology major Jen Connor describes her idea of a perfect spring break trip, “I think the key elements to making any trip successful are a good group of drama free people, the ability to leave all of your problems and stressful situations at home and most importantly, the sun!”
So look twice at spring breakers. They provide the ability to let go of worries for one-week. Forget the textbooks, the exams and stressful deadlines.
College is only a small step in people’s lives and why waste is wishing there would have been at least one week away without a care in the world?
Even if the farthest place able to travel is only 30 minutes away, pack a cooler, bring some music, friends and forget about the worries of everyday life. Be a college student and soak up every minute of wasting hours with the group of people that mean the most.
