Pros And Cons Of Fall Break

Pros And Cons Of Fall Break

When the words 'spring' and 'break' are put together we are led to think of sunshine, fun, happiness and good times with friends. The idea of fall break has always sounded more relaxing and pleasant. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing colors, pumpkin patches are in full swing, and we can almost smell the pumpkin lattes carried around by anyone we would consider basic. 

When we think about packing for fall break, most of us want to be packing boots, leggings, and sweaters, but packing is probably going to be an issue for many places you may visit. The weather this time of the year is about as unpredictable as that early March spring break we always hate. Although it is only an extended weekend, I am sure we are all going to see those Vera Bradley duffles packed pretty tight.

Unfortunately, fall break is much shorter than spring break. It is just a couple of extra days added to the weekend -- almost seems counterproductive to even give it a name! With just a four day weekend, most of us will go out of town, stay as long as we can, and then come back to school, only to be overwhelmed with homework, projects, papers, reading assignments, and test preparation. 

We already get a week out for Thanksgiving, which most schools do not grant their students. Our Thanksgiving break ends up being nine days with the two weekends, so at least I am able to find some down time if homework is a must. Because of this fall break, our semester will end later than usual. I would rather have Christmas break start earlier, wouldn't you? At least when Christmas break arrives, finals are done, and there isn't school work.

Although the fall break is new and odd to all of us here at Auburn, keep an open mind! Who knows, maybe fall break will be your favorite break all year.

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
