Student Fall Break Plans

Tatiana Kent (

Fall Break is only a couple of days away, and Ursinus students are looking forward to our first real time off since the year started. With midterms and course loads becoming more demanding, these four days of leisure can’t come soon enough. 

I surveyed a random sampling of students to find out what Bears are planning and looking forward to this long weekend. Read on! 

“I’m flying home to San Francisco, and then road tripping up to Portland, Oregon, and back; then flying back to Philly. My sister goes to school in Portland…so I’m going to visit my sister and hang out with my mom and then be back in the Bay Area for a couple days to see my family.” – Rachel ‘23

“Seeing my family and having time to relax and not worry about doing homework.” – Terry ‘23
