Planning Fall Break – Staying Local vs. Traveling Farther
In many ways, it is hard to believe that Fall Break is almost here. While in other ways, it feels like you have been away from home and in school forever, working hard and studying. Even though we are still a week away from the big weekend, it is a good time to start making plans, be it big or small.
For those of you who are not planning on doing anything big or extravagant for Fall Break, no need to panic, plenty of students are in the same situation. More students than you think use the break as an opportunity to catch up on sleep and homework and opt to stay on campus in Millersville. If you do want to get off campus for fall break, however, you still have plenty of options. Here is a list of ideas for you:
- Go home with a friend. Many Millersville students are thrilled to bring a friend home with them to show off, especially if that new friend is an international student. Going home with a friend will allow you to experience some family traditions that you may not have known about or ever experienced in your country. From home-cooked food, to exploring their hometown and meeting your friend’s family, you will get to see a side of life in the US and your friend you are not exposed to here at Millersville. Not only will you be able to experience home life here in the US, you will also be able to build your friendship further and make a friend for life. You never know when you will be back in the US and this is a great way to make lasting friends that you can visit for years to come. So go ahead and ask if you can go home with someone and spend time with their family, you will not regret it!
- Go explore. Pittsburg, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. or Baltimore are all easy to get to and have plenty of things to do. These are perfect locations to visit for a day trip or long weekend, so team up with a friend or two and make a mini-trip out of it!
- Take advantage of the great fall weather. Take Advantage of the Fall Weather. It doesn’t have to be bright and sunny for you and your friends to have fun outside. Instead of planning a trip to the coast, you can plan a trip to some nearby mountains or woods. Renting a cabin for a few days is fun and affordable, especially when you split the cost among a few friends. Whether you rent a cabin or not, you can always use the fall season to your advantage. It’s the perfect time for picking apples, pumpkins and any other fruits or vegetables. If there is a lake or river within driving distance, fall break is a beautiful time to go rowing since multicolored leaves should be lazily falling into the water and floating alongside your canoe. Be sure to bring your camera!
