Safe Spring Break!

Spring Break is right around the corner...are YOU ready? Whether you have to pack up your bags for your trip to Miami, go shopping for cover-ups for the beach, or just figure out what exactly it is you're going to need, there's much to be done to prep for the one week vacation! You still have classes to worry about, so let the Office of Student Leadership and Activities give you a hand!

From Thursday, March 14th, 2013 through Wednesday, March 20th, 2013, we are holding a week-long series of events all under the theme of "SAFE SPRING BREAK." During this time, we're here to help you prepare for spring break by providing you with the resources to do so! There's more to spring break than vacationing, such as taking care of yourself, staying safe, and eating right, and we've got all the bases covered. We have some great, interactive things planned; check it out!:

What can you pack? What's allowed on a plane? How are you going to fit it all?? Stop by our Student Center Atrium table on March 14th from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. to test your packing skills by stuffing a L.L. Bean Backpack with essential spring break items. Do a good, fast job and you will be put in the running to win one of the backpacks you packed!

Also at this table will be a jar condoms. Join us and Delta Chi to guess how many you think are inside to win some spring break essentials!

Can't wait for break? We're with you! Get in the "tropical" state of mind by coming to our Spring Break Karaoke in Hofstra USA from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. on Friday, March 15th, to bust out your favorite vacation-themed tunes!

What about facing moral dilemmas? Sometimes, there are tough decisions that may arise during Spring Break, such as dealing with the presence of alcohol. Join Dodie Gillett, Ph.D. of Student Counseling Services on Monday, March 18th from 6:00pm - 7:00 pm in Student Center Room 143 for "What's the Deal with Spring Break and Alcohol?" as she discusses the importance of being safe with alcohol and it's relation to your friendships/relationships.

Not prepared for the beach yet? We've got you "covered." On Tuesday, March 19th from 10:45am - 2pm by the clock tower outside of Student Center, come make a “cover up” to help protect your skin from the sun and enjoy some free food!

Do you know what food to be packing with you this break? Come find out! On Wednesday, March 20th from 11am - 2pm, come to the Student Center Dining Room to join OSLA and Students for a Greener Hofstra for our "This or That?" event to see if you can guess what food options are healthier than others for a chance win a free L.L. Bean backpack!


See? There's much to be explored and gained when preparing for spring break with the Office of Student Leadership and Activities! We do hope you'll join us in all the fun, and that it helps you while you're away on break! For more information, "LIKE" our facebook page!
