Spring break 2020 was a major turning point in the academic year for many colleges. For my university we extended it an additional week to allow faculty time to shift their courses to remove learning and then we told students to stay home or in their dorm and that the rest of the semester would be delivered remotely or all online. Holy cow! How much has happened since then.
Spring break 2021 is currently still on the books for a few colleges and are probably at risk of being canceled. Students look forward to and need the break. Many aren’t getting one this year. What can you do for your student to help them refresh? Here are a few ideas.
Universities have traded spring break 2021 for reading or wellness days sprinkled throughout the spring semester. So what’s a college student to do that will not take them away from campus for more than the single reading or wellness days but still do something out of the ordinary that will help recharge them.
A silver lining in all this is that since most colleges and universities have canceled spring break for students the traditional SB locations may be great destinations for us empty nesters.
Your college kids can’t go, but perhaps you can. I would consider it doing your part to save the visitor economy and ensure those businesses are there for future generations.
