    Leaving the Rock

    Advertisements



    I was just wondering how often do you guys get to leave the island to go home to the US. Do you get any vacations during the semester besides between semesters?

    Good Luck!

    There aren't many holidays during the semester, besides St. Maarten Day (you don't even get Thanksgiving off ).

    Some people do take vacations during the semester, depending on their exam schedule, but most wait until semester breaks.

    There are only like 2 vacation days but you will more then likely have an exam after the vaction day so its not a day off just an extra day to study. When breaks come they are for about 10 days and you can go home or stay and enjoy the island.

    even though i can TRY to go back to the states in during school days but i would not want to do that. i would rather just rest or go to the beach or hang out with friends whenever i can, because first of all, the tickets are so expensive and its really not worth it to just go back for only a couple of days (unless you have no choice because of some emergencies). and also, you wouldn't want to miss your classes........ you will have a lot of catching up to do when you are back or you might miss quizes that are given in certain classes or signing attendence for extra credit.... unless you are smart enough to get good grades in all your classes (unlike me :-()
