    What students do for semester breaks?

    Advertisements



    A quick question, any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Do most students go home for semester breaks or stay on the island. I realize that most students will go home for christmas break, but what about the other semester breaks?

    Thanks in Advance!

    go home if you can.
    i knew people that went home to asia for their breaks.
    if you don't get homesick..
    you'll at least want to go back for the amenities.

    Last semester, i flew home during the mini-break (4 or 5 day weekend you get in premed). Well worth it..AND i went home for the regular break. (Always too short!)

    Canada

    If you are from Canada then better check weather warnings and flights cancelled. I don't recommend to go back to Canada or you will get stranded for good.

    All over Canada is terrible cold, snow and storms going on, bunch of passengers are sleeping at the air ports.

    Yes..premeds get a small break during the year also (like a spring break/fall break, etc). it's usually 2 days (like a thurs/friday or mon/tues) so plus the weekend, you've got a 4 day weekend. I didnt have any classes on wed during my premed semester, so it was a 5 day break for me..Enjoy it in premed because it's not offered in med
