Get off your ass and see the world
Ask any college student what he or she plans to do after graduation, and chances are the answer will involve traveling. We live in the age of globalization, and today’s students are getting a serious itch to get out and experience all that it has to offer. But why wait until graduation? Your college years are a great time to get out and see the world. Most students aren’t tied down by a career or family. Plus, you’re eligible for a number of student discounts that make traveling as cheap as it will ever be for you.
Travelers agree that the best trips are the ones for which you’ve done enough planning that you’re free to let spontaneity take over. If you have a pretty good idea of where you want to go and how you’re going to get there, you can focus your energy on making memories that will last a lifetime.
We can help you plan the basics of your trip. This section covers:
- Spring Break. Students may look forward to Spring Break all year long, but that doesn’t mean they actually get off their asses and make travel plans before the last minute. We cover everything you need to know to make sure your Spring Break trip is the time of your life, including advice on what to look for in a hotel and how to stay safe (and out of jail). We also profile the top 10 Spring Break hot spots that are attracting the most students.
- Road trips. Piling all your friends into a car and hitting the open road is a college tradition. We have tips for making sure your road trip is one to remember, including places you may want to consider visiting and games you can play in the car when you get bored.
- Study abroad. Have you ever wanted to just pack up and leave the country but can’t afford to take time off school to do it? Studying abroad may be just the ticket for you. Seeing the world and gaining college credit at the same time - what could be better? Our guide to study abroad includes detailed information about what to pack (and what to leave behind), as well as profiles of the coolest countries to visit.
- Passports and visas. Without the right documentation, you’re not going anywhere. You’ll need a passport if you want to travel outside the country, and you may also need a visa. Confused about exactly what these travel documents are and how you go about getting them? We have the information you need.
