Spring Has Sprung!

We're just a day away from Spring Break here at St. Mike's (which includes Easter break this year). It's a beautiful 50 degrees, the sun is shining, and students finally have the opportunity to go outside and enjoy the weather! Spring means a whole lot of things when you're in college.

1. Hanging out with friends
From the Color Run last spring!! It was such a beautiful day to be outside.
If you look outside on any given spring day (given that it's not raining), you'll see a ton of students hanging out on the green. The Ultimate Frisbee players are out on the library lawn every day at 4:00, people bring their guitars and ukuleles outside and play, students sit at picnic tables and chat, and everybody just gets to enjoy the weather.

2. Spring break!
I'll miss this campus while I'm gone!
You might go on a trip with friends, go visit family, or just take the week to relax. No matter what you do, spring break is looked forward to by all, as a chance to breathe after months of hard academic work. Enjoy it!

3. Time to apply for internships
My intern family from Saint Michael's Playhouse two summers ago!
They're hiring - contact me to find out how to apply!)
Many consider college as one of the best times of their lives. One of the greatest benefits of college is the opportunity for internships, both during the academic year and the summer. Whether they're paid or unpaid, internships are a great way to get experience and give you a better chance for graduate school and future employment opportunities. Summer internship applications tend to be due in March, so if you're planning on applying, make sure to check your due dates!

4. The semester is almost over (AHH!!)
My drama club family from the end of last year. 1/4 of them have gone and graduated,
and we're losing more this year. I miss them all terribly.
When we get back from break, there is only a short month and a half before the semester is over. It's scary how quickly college flies by. Take advantage of every moment, and love what you do!!!
