Don’t look now, but spring is right around the corner. Can’t you tell?
Despite the wintery weather, Penn State students will be on spring break next week.
Spring is usually associated with warmer weather and flowers, but here in Erie, it seems unlikely that we’ll escape this polar vortex anytime soon.
Of course, spring break allows students the perfect opportunity to escape the cold… at least for a little while.
We asked some Penn State Behrend students what their plans are for the break:
Shayleana Randle, sophomore, Art Administration: “I’m going to Rhode Island to visit my grandmother.”
Sean Dalton, freshman, Chemistry: “I will mostly just be at home taking care of my daughter.”
Cassie Cristea, freshman, Business: “I am going home to Warren to visit family and friends.”
Jeremy Maurer, junior, Psychology: “I’ll be going home to DuBois to spend time with my family.”
Alan Buckel, senior, Interdisciplinary Business with Engineering Studies: “I’m going to Colorado to snowboard.”
Matt Vipond, freshman, Mechanical Engineering: “I’ll be working on a service project in Erie.”
Justin Corwin, junior, Letters, Arts, & Sciences: “I’ll be working construction.”
Kara Wenzel, sophomore, Math: “I’ll be doing nothing but homework.”
Josh Wilkins, sophomore, Chemistry: “I’m staying in Erie and will just be relaxing and spending time with my girlfriend.”
Jen Gibson, sophomore, Marketing: “I’m going to Florida to visit my friend.”
Tyreck Green, freshman, undecided: “I won’t be doing anything exciting; just chilling.”
