Thinking About Spring Break Yet?

I know, the semester has just begun, but it's time to start thinking about Spring Break. Where will you go? Are you staying in Murfreesboro? Are you planning a trip? Would you like to visit other places within the US? There are plenty of options!

First, there is a trip to Puerto Rico that the Rec Center has planned. The trip will be a chance to visit the US territory in the Caribbean for some surfing, snorkeling, and hiking. The dates of the trip are March 6th through 11th, and the cost is $1175 per person, which includes transportation, lodging, and lessons. The picture in this post has the details. Sign-ups are through the Rec Center. This trip will not require a new or different Visa, but will require your I-20 be signed for travel.

Next is a trip to Washington, DC. This trip will be led by Harold Bryer. Harold, if you are not familiar, is associated with an organization called, InterFace. This is not part of ISSS, but Harold has worked with us for many years to provide services and events for international students. You might know Harold from the Tuesday night, Conversation Partners Meal. Harold's trip to DC will be March 4th through 12th. The cost will be $350 plus one tank of gas (approximately $40). This cost covers transportation and lodging, but not food and other items. For this trip, you can sign up in the ISSS office, Jones Hall 111. This trip is limited to two males and four females. If you would like to sign up, bring a $100 deposit to the ISSS office as early as possible.

Finally, ISSS will plan a trip to somewhere in the Middle Tennessee area for those who are not planning to travel during the break. The trip will be a single day trip, leaving out at 8am, and returning by 4pm. We will have a survey in a future email for those wishing to join. It will be Wednesday, March 9, and will have a destination of somewhere such as, Opry Mills Mall in Nashville, Fall Creek Falls Park for hiking, the Huntsville Space Museum in Alabama, the Nashville Zoo, etc. Start thinking about where you'd like to go and be ready to answer the survey when it is asked.

So, begin thinking about your Spring Break plans. The second week of March will be here before you know it!
