With spring break approaching many students are preparing to travel to different places and engage in different activities to have some fun and take a break from the rigors of school. Some will be visiting colleges, while others will be vacationing or staying home.

A main thing to do over spring break for many juniors is visit colleges as this is one of their last chances before they have to apply.

“I’m going to be driving up for college visits,” junior Abigail Weber said. “Up north, like northeast. I might swing by Cornell again because my dad worked there and he might want to give me a backstage tour of the chaplain’s office again.”

Some students are forced into plans their parents came up with for the break, and isn’t their ideal way to spend the time off. However, they look forward to making the best of their spare time.

“I’m not doing anything over the break,” junior Luke Garris said. “I’m going to Norfolk to plant flowers for my mom’s company [and will] spend my free time studying and bringing my grades up.”

Although spring break can be used as a time to catch up on schoolwork or look ahead, one of the ways people enjoy to spend it is relaxing, having fun and not thinking about school for a week.

“I’m going to Florida,” junior Samantha Wilson said. She and her freshman brother Eli Wilson will “be sitting on the beach drinking drinks out of pineapples and tanning, living the dream.”

On the flip side of tanning and enjoying drinks out of pineapples, junior Toby Howard will be braving the cold.

“I’m going to New York to see a play, a Harry Potter play,” Howard said, “and then I’m going straight back home”

Another popular way to spend break is going to visit family. Sophomore Maggie Callsen will be doing so, as she visits her family in a relatively close proximity.

“[I’ll be] going to my aunt’s house, then visit my brother at Virginia Tech,” Callsen said. “[My aunt lives] three hours away in the middle of nowhere.”
