Constant status updates on Facebook reveal students cannot stop
talking about spring break.
The usual hot spot for spring break is Mexico, but this year
students are flocking to the desert, or the beach or are simply
heading home to relax.
“[I’ll be] resting to be ready for spring,” said Don Huinh, a
third-year civil engineer student. “No plans.”
Other students are hoping for the opposite. “My friend is coming
in town from West Point, so we are probably going to the beach even
if it is cold,” said Amanda Rua, a first-year zoology student.
“Then Vegas at the end of spring break with friends and go swimming
and maybe a club. The rest is kind of up in the air.”
Desert cities have become the go-to destination for student’s

“I am taking a three day trip to Palm Springs, maybe go to

The talk of Lake Havasu in Arizona during spring break seems to
be the new Mexico to party.
“I want to go to Havasu because apparently there is a big thing
going on there,” said Roy Delgado, a first-year electronic
engineering technology student.
Delgado and Eddy are planning to attend S.W.A.T. and Rockstar
Energy Drink’s Spring Break 2010 at Lake Havasu, March 28-31.
Four hotels in Arizona are offering three-night hotel
accommodations, on-site boat rentals and tours. The event itself
includes day and night events, DJs, raves and a stop light
Other students have plans to leave the country, rather than
“I might be going to England,” said Zach Shannon, a second-year
computer science student. “I met some friends over the summer who
are from England and I have always wanted to go [there].”
Students who are traveling for spring break to Vegas, Lake
Havasu, Mexico or England should take precautions. Spring break
