In an ordinary year, Spring Break is the pinnacle of second semester breaks. It is the holiday students far and wide look forward to, seizing the opportunity to escape and have fun. It can mean trips to faraway places or simple respites spent at home with family.
However, since this is no ordinary year, the occasion looks decidedly different. Instead of a week of festivities spent away from campus, it has been reduced to a singular day during the week. Rather than despair at the loss, there are still ways this day can be spent so that some semblance of fun is maintained.
If you’re unsure about how to capitalize on this short break, the Collegian’s staff members have a few suggestions on how to spend the day.
Kyle Hamrick: “Hike on one of the Natchez Trace Trails, then come back and write a history paper.”

John Mark Pinter: “Sleep.”
Rachel Faulk: “Go to a nice bookstore or coffee shop.”
Marquisha Mathis: “Netflix and Hulu.”
Kienna Van Dellen: “Head to a coffee shop with a few friends!”
