Be careful during Spring Break

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


When you think of spring break, the first thing that comes to mind is a tropical oasis where you experience a never ending party, a culture that never sleeps or slows down.

One of the popular spring break sites is the infamous South Padre Island.

Many students across the state are planning to adventure to South Padre or another vacation site during the annual party week. The island averages 150,000 students every year during spring break.

Although it is ideal to just stay local and relax at home, many may be going on vacation ignorant or not caring about the dangers it may come with.

According to Forbes, 599,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 receive unintentional injuries while under the influence of alcohol.

Even if you’re not drinking or doing drugs, the surrounding people may be bound to be doing so. Being put into that situation can compromise your life.

To avoid harmful situations during the break, you should stay with familiar people like friends and/or family. Be smart and know your surroundings. Also, don’t go off with people you do not know. And although that might seem elementary, doing those small things can help you have a better and safer break.

Often, with a week of non-stop fun, socializing, and going to different events, things can quickly turn deadly. Most cases are ruled accidents or mysteries, but they all resulted from reckless behavior while on spring break.

This can happen to anyone, including your friends and yourself. Just… don’t become a statistic. Make sure you get back home.
