The second to last week in March RIT students were on Spring Break. It came at a good time as many, myself included, were feeling worn out from the rigorous spring semester. I started my break bright and early on Saturday with a drive to Massachusetts for the Boston Accepted Student Reception. After arriving the Admissions group I went with visited the North End, making sure to stop at Mike's Pastry. Sunday morning we prepared for the program and welcomed dozens of accepted students and their families. It felt like a productive session and all of the students fielded questions and got to engage with students. An 8 hour drive put me back in Rochester and into Monday morning.

Late Monday morning I flew out from Rochester to Fort Lauderdale to join my girlfriend and fraternity brothers in Pampano Beach for the rest of the break. It was nice standing in the warmth of the sun and enjoying the comfortable weather, especially being able to relax on the beach. On Thursday my girlfriend and I went on a quick helicopter ride (our first time in the air in one) and got some great views of the Pompano Beach/Hillsboro area of Florida.

While the break flew by quickly it was much needed and much enjoyed. I travelled across 8 different states and thousands of miles but I came out of the time relaxed and ready to get back to finish spring semester strong.
