5 Different Types Of Spring Breaks For College Students

We weren't all on a beach somewhere...sadly.

The break that we all look forward to when the drag of second semester hits: spring break. It can be a huge party or a huge letdown. However, there are about 5 categories that the average college students' spring break trip fits into. Which one best describes how you spent your break?

1. The iconic college trip

When students really cut loose and drink from 7 am to 6 am the next morning. This usually results in many wild stories and very questionable (and flashy) social media posts.

    2. The family getaway

    When students tag onto whatever their parents are doing for that week. Whether that be going to grandmas or spending the break at a resort, you’re just glad you have someone else paying for your meals.

    3. The true school spirit

    When a student chooses (or unwillingly) has to stay on campus for spring break. This calls for many nights of staying in or trying to recruit some friends of a friend to go out. Constantly reminded of the school being just a hop and a skip away, you’re constantly messaging your friends to come back.

    4. The “No days off”

    For those students who hate doing nothing for a week so they stockpile it up with endless shifts at their hometown job. This student would really rather make money then spend it.

    5. The laziest week of your life

    Those students that literally need a week to do nothing. "Wake up, Netflix, eat, sleep and repeat" is their motto. You get endless naps, food, and don’t have to worry about a beach bod—what more could you ask for?

    No matter which type of spring break trip you took, somehow, you still know exactly how many more days (or exact hours) you have until you have to get back to school and start drowning in work yet again.

    Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

    These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

    Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

    I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

    But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

    We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

    The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

    Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
