As students, we owe it to ourselves to soak up as much as our school has to offer. Furthermore, as seniors, we have a duty to take every morsel and droplet of experience before they kick us out (or we leave willingly, depending on who’s asked). Graduation is going to look a lot closer from the other side of spring break, which is (finally!) here. There’s a tiny voice inside my head that is afraid of me looking back in 10, 20, or 30 years and saying, “Hey, why didn’t I do that thing in college I always wanted to do?” Here’s hoping to prevent that.
1. Vote for teacher of the year. Maybe someday it will be someone from the Hofstra School of Education. 2. Get a job interview haircut. Not only will you look good, but you will feel good. Maybe even give the salon above the Student Center a try. There is nothing nicer than only having to walk about 10 steps from your dorm to get your haircut. 3. Get new job interview clothes. We are all poor college students but wearing a new outfit for a big interveiw could give you that little bit of confidence that you need to nail that interview. 4. Wash your sheets. Let’s be honest with each other for a minute. Think of the last time you washed your sheets. Can’t remember? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Grab some detergent and head downstairs because there is nothing better than slipping into freshly cleaned sheets at night. 5. Spring clean. Whether it is just cleaning the windows, or scrubing down your whole dorm, just clean. As the weather gets warmer it makes for the perfect time to open the windows, clean the floors, and dust off all those books you haven’t used all semester. 6. If you haven’t seen Hofstra’s production of Antony and Cleopatra, definitely do that (shows are Thursday-Sunday). 7. Take a second and think about your meal plan – how much do you have left to spend on a per week basis? 8. Look for that glorious email that says your final installment to Hofstra has been paid. Frame it. 9. If you live in a suite style room, make sure to clean out your bathroom. I think cleanings are scheduled for when we are gone. 10. Make all your friends encouragement cards. Over spring break, think of well-wishes you can send to everyone. This will be a relaxing activity that will take your mind off your own stresses and you’ll be able to cheer someone else up.
