Celebrate Even When You Can’t Go Home for the Holidays

December is here and it’s bringing the festivities with it. Commitments at work, lack of funds, a hectic study schedule and winter weather conditions are just a handful of reasons why you might not be traveling home for the holidays. There are still a lot of ways you can celebrate the holidays, even if you’re flying solo.

Piggy-back on someone else’s holiday dinner. A lot of families would be more than happy for you to join them, just be sure you offer to help!

Hosting your own celebration is always an option. You can easily create a small get-together with other students that are stuck on campus.
