After a much needed vacation in sunny Florida for spring break, I am back in Happy Valley!
Spring break is a little different from Thanksgiving break and winter break in the sense that when you return from spring break, you’re left with 7-8 weeks remaining in the academic year.
Or in my case as a senior, the end of my undergraduate college career. It puts things into perspective, because I realized I am almost done with college and my time at Penn State is coming to an end faster than I want it to.
Within the next 7-8 weeks, I have to buy my cap and gown, meet with my adviser to finish applying for full-time jobs, take my finals (for the last time) go to my last Blue-White game, take my pictures at the Lion Shrine and ultimately prepare for the real world.
With that being said, I still have two months of school left which means that slacking off is not an option. At one point everyone needs a break, but when you step back on campus break is over!
Most professors give midterms before break starts, but some others may not so it’s time to study and get back into the swing of things. Projects are due, tests are to be taken, but fun is also to be had.
My advice for prospective students is to balance your school and social life and become advocates for time management, especially after the wonderful breaks that are provided throughout the year come to an end.
I always say the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight after spring break, because you’re one step closer to the end of the school year and the start of summer vacation. Just remember that it isn’t quite there yet.
For the Glory…
