From May 25th to May 31st, KSU students had Spring Break and how they chose to handle their hiatus was under their own will and power. Senior Architect major Ben Cyvus said how crucial Spring Break was in order to stay mentally-stable.
“For me, I’ve always tried to take that mental break to give myself a de-stress,” Cyvus said.
But when that week-long break is over, students reverted back to their daily routine and showed no signs of excitement. 6-year nursing instructor Amy Veney noticed this trend in students.
“When they come back, they’ve had a taste of what it’s like to not be working. Or, they’ve had to work on a project while they were on Spring Break unfortunately. So, either way it brings them back wanting the semester to be over,” Veney said.
And with only a month or so left of school after coming back from Spring Break, students must quickly shift back into full-gear as they are under immense pressure to meet deadlines and prepare for finals.
Junior Nutrition major Amy Hollie found that tutoring is a good option to help her transition smoothly from vacation-mode to school-mode.
“It’s really nice having these resources to go to because I personally gain from 1-on-1 tutoring. So, it’s definitely useful before a test too,” Hollie said.
Cyvus said that students understanding path they chose and dealing with the bumps in the road can leave a huge mark on their futures.
“When it comes down to it, it’s all about what you’re passionate about and what you want to do and what you will do to get to that point,” Cyvus said.
