It’s about that time again in the year when the spring season starts. The sun stays up just a little bit longer, temperatures warm up and leftover snow starts to quietly leave the premises.
With all of these signs, it can only mean one thing. Spring Break is here for RU students. The time has come for students to breathe out a sigh a relief as most of them have gone through a tough week.
“I’ve been swamped with so much work leading up to break, but unfortunately for me I’ll have to be studying when I’m home”, said RU student Erica Hale.
Spring Break for most students will be spent at a lovely destination spot called home. Freshman Kenny Carr explained with enthusiasm what his break will entail of.
“I’m just going to be hanging out at home relaxing. I’ll try to get some homework done, and a little bit of exercising, but besides that, nothing special”.
Nothing beats going home. However, students Emily Bowers and Samantha Hough broke the home barriers down by stating their case for spring break.
“PANAMA CITY”! They both shouted as people around us started to look and wonder if things were alright at the table we were sitting at.
It was as if some divine power intervened in their minds when their spring break destination was thought of.
“It was kind of spur of the moment, but we’re glad. It’s going to be 5 girls in a hotel which means great times”, said Emily with a smile.
Going home isn’t always as bad especially when there is an opportunity involved. Senior Christina Jatras talked about her promising break.
“I’m going home for a job interview at the Department of Homeland Security”.
Talk about an opportunity, but Jatras did say that it’s not going to be a cake walk.
“The job itself I’m not so worried about, it’s the interviewing part. I’m going to be nervous when it’s time”.
Believe it or not, there are some students who actually don’t want to leave RU. Isabel Wu, who is probably the only student who will be staying on campus talked about her plans for break.
“I’m going to be staying here in my dorm for break. I’m tired of traveling, and plus I had a terrible experience over winter break”.
Whether a student is going home, staying at RU, or vacationing at an exotic location, one thing’s for sure. They’re all happy about getting break, even if it’s just one week. If only it could be longer…
