Your tickets are bought, your bags are packed and your alarm is set for the first day of your Spring Break. Aside from the token textbook you're bringing with you (simply to keep up appearances, right?), you plan on leaving all your worries, cares, and assignments at home. But here's one final checklist for you to go over before you leave so that you have an awesome and a SAFE trip.
Whether you’re looking to avoid an assignment or a spate of bad weather, the movie theater is the perfect getaway. 2011 has a selection of films to suit every taste—and with the recession still bedeviling the box office, plenty of theaters are offering discounted tickets to students these days. I’ve combed through the archives of IMDB and Apple Trailers to bring you my picks for the year. How can you resist?
As far as massive bookstore empires go, I have always been a Barnes & Noble fan. When I was little, I would beg my mom for a B&N visit at the end of a long day of downtown shopping. Once inside my favorite chain bookstore, I would run to the sci-fi and fantasy section and bury myself in the latest Star Wars novelization.
