OPINION: Spring break should be a time of new experiences


Everyone loves the excitement that spring break brings into their lives.

Growing up, I always remembered the joy of having spring break. Those are the times that I wish I could get back, but, especially for college students, spring break can provide some of the most memorable times that we will ever experience for the rest of our lives.

There are numerous places to choose from when picking a place to vacation during a luxurious week off from classes. From the East Coast to the West Coast, there are various locations to reside for the week.

Among all the places outside the U.S. to vacation at, for some odd reason, most Kansas State students like to vacation in the same area.

Spring break is a time for you to have fun and get away from all the troubles and worries that college brings into your life. All the work, stress, grades and financial issues should be temporarily forgotten during spring break.

It is the time where you kick your feet up and relax without a care in the world. “Hakuna Matata” should be the phrase that college students live by during that full week off from school.

“We are around these people daily, (and) I feel like we should get away from our peers and take a break away from each other and go to different places,” Corey Sutton, sophomore in kinesiology, said. “It will only be for a short amount of time, so the period of being away from our peers will not be too bad.”

This is a time for you to have fun and find peace within yourself. It is the time to be around your closest friends and the people you love.

Find a place that is unique and fits your needs to have the most memorable time of your life. Step out of your comfort zone and dare to be different.
