When it comes to winter and summer breaks most students opt for the same option of going back home and visiting family. All the sentiment and hugs are great for the first week or two, but then things get great. Some student stay on campus throughout break and don’t take any classes. What a boring time that is. You don’t have to be these people. You can spin this break into something amazing that will reap awesome benefits.
Firstly, instead of going home and hiding out in your childhood room throughout your break, take a course or two and lighten the load come the Fall or Spring semester. You can use that extra time to focus on hobbies and have more fun. It’ll definitely make things less stressful on you.
If your more for fun, take a money out of your vacation to go on Holiday. Check out Europe or Asia. When it comes down to it, traveling will deliver some of the best education you can get your hands on. It will also give a heck of story to tell when you meet up with your friends back on campus. If you feel you aren’t ready for life abroad, you can always take a road trip with some friends. Hitting the slopes or camping amongst the nature will give you an awesome memory to look back on. Nothing will solidify your friendships more than an awesome road trip experience.
Maybe you don’t have the money to travel. That doesn’t mean your vacation has to go to waste. Take up an internship if you can find one. That extra experience will help a ton when it comes to finding a job in your field. You’ll have the experience to back up your knowledge. This might actually be your best choice.
