This Spring Break, some of us may be flying off to tropical locations, feeling the sun on our faces and the gentle ocean waves tickling our toes. These people will be able to experience temperatures above 30°, see real, green grass, and maybe even go out side without a coat on! These are the lucky ones. But even for those of us who aren’t going somewhere tropical, Spring Break is always a much needed week of rest. So enjoy your time at home, visiting friends, or maybe even having a quiet week on campus. Snuggle up and grab one of our favorite Spring Break movies!
