3. SABRE pepper gelYour personal safety should always be a top priority, but you have to be especially careful during Spring Break. You should always be cautious and use the buddy system, but for the times when you get separated from your friends, be prepared by carrying around SABRE pepper gel. It has a 12-foot range and it’s pink, so what’s not to love?

4. The Intern’s Handbook by Shane KuhnWith internship season right around the corner, why not dive into an intense novel centered on an intern at a law firm in New York City?

Plus, this book is going to be made into a movie starring Dave Franco — need we say more?
