20 Fun Activities To Relax With Over Spring Break!

As a fellow college student, I completely understand the stress of midterms, exams, and last-minute assignments. We count down to break as if were receiving a winning lottery ticket. Although the excitement for break typically gets ruined by online quizzes, "over break" assignments, and group projects, you should still find time to enjoy the spring fun. Relaxing mentally is just as important as studying hard throughout the first half of the semester. According to the ADAA, 80 percent of people say that they frequently or sometimes experience daily stress. At the University of Virginia's College at Wise, stress is one of the top reasons for counseling services.

Here are a few ideas to actually "take a break" from the stress and time commitment to college.
