March is on the horizon. That can only mean one thing for college students… SPRING BREAK! Whether you are going to be in the Florida sun or the Colorado snow, we have tips for how to have a safe, fun and relaxing spring break!

Spring Break is a time of excitement and fun, but can also be frightening you aren’t careful about how you go about certain situations. Liz Steinborn-Gourley, director of the Women’s Center says that the best piece of advice is to “always have a buddy” and if you are in the sun or somewhere warm, “make sure to be drinking lots of water so no dehydration occurs.”

Liz mentioned “spring break honeys” and says that “If you want things to go in a physical direction, bring your own protection that you know and trust. Before becoming intoxicated, talk with your friends about what you are OK or not OK with doing.” If you choose a physical route, the LGBT Center has two free condoms per person and the Health Education office has 4 condoms for $1.

With the flowing excitement that can come with spring break and all the chaos going on around you, make sure to take safety precautions and make safe decisions throughout your time away!
