Ideas for College Students to do over Spring Break

Wondering what to do after finals week?

I bet you can’t wait for finals week to be over and done with, so you and your friends can break away from the studying and all the necessary all-nighters you’re going to have to pull during "dead week".
Ideas for College Students to do over Spring Break

If you're already stressing out about exams, remember it'll all be worth it in the end and you'll be rewarded with a much deserved spring break afterwards. Stay focus for now because you’ll have plenty of time to play hard after finals week! In the meanwhile to keep you going, you may want to check out this list of ideas for college students to do over spring break:

1) Head north

Who says spring break has to be fun in the sun? There is no doubt that most college students will be heading south to sunny locales such as Mexico, Florida and the Caribbean, but if you’re the type that likes heading the opposite direction to the “sheeple” then, how about going for a ski vacation over spring break?

A ski vacation during spring break is actually not as “crazy” as it sounds since you’ll definitely avoid the herds of student college crowds and save money in the process. It’s cheaper to go on skiing vacation during the spring break since the overwhelmingly majority of college students (including other vacationers) head somewhere warm.

2) Honor "Animal House"

Attending a college student toga party is definitely, one of the most popular things to do over spring break, though if you wasn’t for the movie “Animal House” college student parties today probably wouldn’t be the same.

Therefore, what better way to “honor” Animal House than by hosting a proper toga party (keggers included)? Toga parties are the “crème de la crème” of all college break student parties and if you’re hosting one, you’re sure to be everyone’s best buddy and a favorite with the ladies!

3) Spend time with family

Having being a student myself, I remember that spending time with family wasn't the most popular idea of enjoying the spring break. I’m pretty sure things haven’t changed much in that respect for a lot of college students today, and I do understand since I had my own reasons for not wanting to be back home over the spring break.

However, I gave it a shot one spring break to mend things with parents and reconnect with other family members. By the way, you don’t necessarily have to spend the whole spring break at home to build bridges with the parents…a week or two max should do the trick;)

4) Volunteer overseas

Volunteering abroad has recently become one of the most popular ideas for college students to do over spring break. If you’re the type of person who feels like doing something more rewarding than attending a wet t-shirt contest or getting down on stage showing off “the you know what” then, you’ll be glad to know that you'll find hundreds of opportunities for voluntary work abroad.

Spring break volunteer projects can range from eco-friendly projects to help the environment, building homes and schools for less fortunate families, to teaching, handing out medical supplies, etc. Volunteer organizations like “a broader view” and “i-to-i” are a good start for inquiring about volunteer projects abroad.

5) Watch college movies

Just like during Christmas break we sing carols, listen to Christmas songs, and watch "Home Alone" to take in the Christmas spirit, why not do the same over spring break?

I think watching college movies are a real cool thing you and your student buddies can do over the spring break just to maintain the spirit. You can actually watch college comedy movies back-to-back since there are loads out there to be seen such as Back to School, American Pie 2, Orange County, Old School, Legally Blonde, Dead Man on Campus and, of course, National Lampoon’s Animal House.

6) Explore the States

Taking a road trip is one of the best things to do in spring break with your college friends. In fact, to me college spring break road trips represent the spirit of college spring break…hanging out with friends.

Your road trip doesn’t necessarily have to end at one of the major spring break hotspots in the States such as South Padre Island, Panama City Beach or South Beach. You can simply hit the road whatever your hearts take you, though it’s probably a good idea to do a little planning on possible destinations and attractions you may want to see along the way.

7) "Kick-back" like a cowboy

Another cool spring break idea to add to the mix is becoming a cowboy (or cowgirl) for a week. North Wyoming and south Texas are good places to experience the cowboy lifestyle of the Old West and learn cool things like driving and riding the cattle, learn to saddle a horse properly, and other cool stuff you would expect in a working ranch like storytelling by a campfire.

Good luck with your exams!
