A Break from Classes This Spring for Students: Spring Break
At 2:50 this afternoon, Pace students will begin enjoying their annual spring break, each in their own way. The excitement among the student body is palpable, with most agreeing that the break is much needed. Many students are headed out of state for the break, and some are even traveling outside of the country. Family vacations are always popular, but most students are not fond of being separated from their friends on vacation. Junior Carter Draughon said, “I’m not a fan of family vacations,” to which junior Caroline Draughon responded, “Same.” But many students traveling to faraway destinations find ways to overcome their dislike of family trips in order to experience new cultures and surroundings. Freshman Zack Kaminsky said, “I’m going to Italy with just my family for break. I am really excited to get away from things like school work while on vacation.” Sophomore Christina Darland said, “I’m going to Cabo and, really, no one is going to be there. But I am going to get tan, so it’s alright.” A number of students are venturing to exotic destinations with friends this upcoming spring break. Sophomore Zachary Kerker exclaimed, “I can’t wait for a blast from the past with my friends in Seaside this year!”
While many anticipate a relaxing vacation with friends and family, a few have planned to either play sports or explore academic interests over the break. Junior Sarah Jacobson said, “I’m going to visit some colleges over spring break and I’m really excited. Things are going to get crazy.” Junior Tripp Conrad said, “I am staying in Georgia and playing golf in the Athens Southeastern Junior Golf Tournament. Hope I do well…” With such a wide variety of destinations and activities, it’s safe to say that Pace students all eagerly await spring break and only wish it could last longer.
