College students spending spring break responsibly



Media coverage has tended to shine a negative light on students celebrating Spring Break. This has created a perception regarding what students do during spring break that does not reflect reality.

This year, students across the country are volunteering or participating in alternative spring break programs, visiting or traveling with family and friends, and many are working over spring break or catching up on schoolwork. Click below to check out the more than 1,000 submissions so far from students who #leadthebreak!
