Tips for a Safe Spring Break


As we finish the last of the dreaded midterm, Spring Break starts to take over the majority of our thoughts. Most people dream of the sandy beach in Panama City Beach while others look forward to the ski slopes in Breckenridge. Whatever you decide to do, there is one thing that is universal: making sure you’re safe. Here are some tips that you should consider while planning the vacation everyone desperately needs.


1. Unfamiliar territory = stay in groups

The new friend that invited you to the Luke Bryan concert may end up being really cool, but going by yourself anywhere can lead to more trouble than good. Make sure that everyone going on the Spring Break trip has a partner that they are held accountable for to avoid the horror stories. It may seem a little “kindergartenish”, but you’ll be thankful when y’all make it back to school safely.


2. Have identification on you at all times.

This may seem like a given, but you’d be surprised at how many people go to the beach or the slopes without anything on them. Having identification is one of those things where in case of an emergency is super important. A purse or wallet may seem like a pain to carry around, but will be helpful in the long run.



Spring Break is the time where you have a week to relax from the stress that is college. It’s also a time that you’ll remember when you don’t have those weeks off when we get into that thing called the real world. Make the most of it and allow yourself to create those memories.


Spring Break can be fun, but at the same time be safe. These tips are just a few of many that can be followed to have a relaxing and responsible vacation!
