7 Things Every College Kid Should Try To Do On Their Summer Break

School’s out and summer has begun! Now that finals have wrapped up, dorms have been packed, and goodbyes have been said - students are home for the summer. But that doesn't mean they're not still out and about. Here is a list of seven things college kids do on their summer break.

1. Hang out with friends

There’s no better way to spend a summer than with friends. Friends are the perfect companions when it comes to lounging by the pool, watching the fireworks, or shopping at the mall.

2. Watching Netflix

Summer is the perfect time to catch up on shows and to discover new ones. Get the popcorn and soda and start binge-watching!

3. Chilling by the pool

There’s no better way to cool off in summer than with your friends by the pool. Don’t forget to bring food to an epic pool party, and make sure to pack sunscreen.

4. Watching the Fourth of July fireworks

There’s no better way to bond with family than by watching the fireworks during July 4th. Find a good spot and enjoy watching the dazzling colors!

5. Going to the beach

Summer break gives college students the perfect opportunity to not only spend time with friends but to also catch some sun after months of being cooped inside studying. Pack up the car and head to the nearest beach to have some fun with friends.

6. Going on a camping trip

For most college students, camping is a great way to bond with friends. It also brings back memories of when they were younger and spending time in nature. There’s no better way to bond than by a campfire with the people you love.

7. Going to a water or theme park

Now that college is over, it’s time to enjoy summer by going to a theme or water park. You can go on rides or cool off and enjoy quality time with family and close friends.

Happy summer to all!

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
