Students choose to stay home or earn money over spring break

March 16, 2008

Despite the gloom of winter and the hype about tropical spring break getaways, most students keep their reading week less glamorous and instead go on school-sponsored service trips, stay on campus, or head home to visit with friends and family.  According to a US survey conducted by the National Association of College Stores, 37% of students planned on spending their spring break at home this year, 28% planned on working, and 5% had volunteer trips planned. Just under 25% had a "special trip" planned. Inside Higher Ed
