March 2013 Archives

After an intense few weeks of mid-term exams and paper, Spring Break is finally here. Spring break is a time for you to celebrate your achievements so far in the semester. It is also a time to take care of yourself so you are ready for the rest of the semester. Most of you may have made various plans to reconnect with friends and family, travel, catch up, or simply enjoy the chance to sleep in.

For those of you who plan to keep working and studying over the break, it is important find ways to recover and reenergize. Think of something that you enjoy doing--things that you do just for yourself--and do some of that over the break. It could be anything-making a good meal, reading, watching a movie, hiking, taking short trips, or a date night. Having down-time is like filling up the gas tank of a car. It may take some time, but you'll be able to reach your destination.

For those of you who plan to just "chill out" and reconnect with friends, there are also things you can do to make the break safer and more fun. When you go out and socialize try to stay with your friends, especially if you are not familiar with the surroundings. If you are in a place that makes you uncomfortable, trust your gut instinct and stay away. If you are above 21 and choose to drink, be mindful of your limits. Make sure that you have a friend to drive you home afterwards, so you can enjoy the gatherings while staying safe. For those of you who plan to travel, try to travel with people you know and trust. It is recommended that you keep your family or friends posted with your travel plan.

Hope you all have a great Spring Break!
