Best Diets for College Students

Just like with colleges, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to selecting the right diet that meet your weight loss goals. For college students, choosing a diet depends on a variety of factors including financial and practicality.

Perhaps you’ve put on the Freshman 15 or perhaps you need to start thinking about your New Year’s resolution, but no matter what your motivation for dieting, here are three of the best diets for college students.

Weight Watchers Online: This famous weight loss program has a plan for everyone, including college students. While most of the Weight Watchers programs require that you attend weekly support group meetings and have weigh-ins, the beauty about the Weight Watchers Online plan is that everything is done – you guessed it, online.

How it works

As a Weight Watchers member, you receive a set number of Weight Watchers POINTS you must follow in order to meet your weight loss goals. Foods with lesser POINT values are low in calorie and healthier for you while foods that pack a calorie punch will be assigned a higher POINTS value. No foods are off limits with Weight Watchers, giving high marks on its practicality ranking. You can log in to a secure online account and access all of the education still found in meetings. It won’t interfere with your already crammed schedule and it gives you all the tools that Weight Watchers offers such as support, recipes, menu planners and much more.

Cost

As a Weight Watchers member, you pay a monthly fee. The weight loss giant often features online coupons or discounts.

Traveling is a great way to learn about the world around you. Unfortunately, it’s also usually pretty expensive as well. Unless you are booking your trip with STA Travel.sta travel

Stay Safe on Spring Break!

spring breakSpring Break can be so much fun! You don’t have to go to school, and hopefully there’s no homework looming over your head. You’re spending some good, quality time with your friends, hitting up local hot-spots or traveling to new places.

But for some reasons, your parents keep telling you to be careful. What can go wrong? It’s all good fun on Spring Break.

Well, at least it is if you take some moderate precautions. Do have fun on Spring Break, but heed your parents’ advice to be careful so you don’t became one of those college students who goes on Spring Break and never comes home.

Tips for Staying Safe on Spring Break:


1. Never leave a bar, party, club or social event alone.
Everyone knows there is safety in numbers. Chances are that you are less likely to be observant of your surroundings if you have been drinking and you will be an easier target for a criminal. Besides, it’s always more fun to be with your friends on Spring Break than to be alone, right?

Spring Break: College Budget Style In The Outdoors

Spring Break is usually synonymous with beach vacations. Playing in the waves, building sand castles, drinking on the beach and staying in a swanky hotel for cheap with your friends is all part of the package. But when you add up hotels, plane tickets, rising gasoline costs, food, and souvenir costs, Spring Break can get pretty expensive, pretty fast. Especially for a college student with limited cash anyway.

If you can’t afford to shell out close to $1,000 for a “beachy” Spring Break or a trip to the mountains to go skiing, don’t stress out too much; you can still have fun on your week off from school. It takes a little more creativity, but you can plan a fun, budget-friendly Spring Break with your friends. Here are some options to get your brain thinking.

1. Road trip. Pick a destination that you have never been to, grab a few friends, hop in the car, and go. Or better yet, rent an RV. But if you’ve got a bone for creativity, you can skimp on the RV. What you can do is get a cheap, used school bus from Skoolie Livin and transform it into a RV of your own. This way, you’ll end up with an RV of your own for cheap. With several of you splitting the cost for gas and lodging, you can make the trip relatively cheap. And chances are, you’ll make some great memories while on the road, even if the destination isn’t as tropical as the Bahamas or South Padre Island. Here is a more in depth list of the top spring break destinations for students.

2. Camping.
If you’re an outdoorsy person, going camping can be a blast. Even if you’re not, as long as you go with some outdoorsy friends, you can still have a blast. Pitching a tent, roasting marshmallows, and hiking through the woods or up a mountain can be a great way to spend your Spring Break. If sleeping in a tent doesn’t appeal to you, consider renting a cabin or an RV. Make sure you have all the camping essentials and stock up on your RV parts you could need on the camping trip. Most national and state parks offer cabins that are not too expensive when you split the cost between several friends.

3. Home-stay. My best friend during my freshman year lived in New York, the largest city in the United States. During Spring Break, we went to NYC, visited her friends from high school, checked out the local hot-spots, and stayed at her parents’ home (i.e. no hotel cost). It was a lot of fun for both of us. We came out with freshly cooked meals and a lot more cheaper than Panama City or the RV campgrounds.

So if going on an extravagant Spring Break vacation this year isn’t in your plans, don’t distress. You can still have a lot of fun, enjoy some relaxation, and not break the bank! Also, check out 10 spring break locations you must go on.



Top Spring Break Destinations for Students

summer_vacationIt’s almost Spring Break! A week free from school, worries, and responsibilities, where all you have to do is what you want to do.

You could go home and see family and friends that you haven’t seen since winter break. You could put in some extra hours at your job and earn some extra money. You could just kick back and relax. Or, if you are like many other high school and college students, you could go on a vacation with your friends.

Where should you go? This list is the most popular Spring Break destinations in the country.

Top International Spring Break Destinations

eiffel towerIt’s finally here! An entire week off from school and it’s time to travel and explore!

If you have a passport, Spring Break is a wonderful time to put it to good use. Many students travel within the country during Spring Break, but if you are adventurous enough, this is a great time to grab some friends and see the world.

Here are the top five international Spring Break destinations for high school and college students.

1.    Cancun, Mexico. Let’s be honest. When someone says Spring Break, Cancun is the first place many people think of for students to travel to. This Mexican beach spot has sun, sand, ocean, and plenty of bars and clubs for a great nightlife. Last year, around 30,000 students traveled to Cancun for Spring Break. Also, there are plenty of companies that cater to students who want to go to Cancun for Spring Break. These companies make it as affordable as possible. This is a great destination if you want to party all night, get your tan on, and not pay too much money.

Students Kicking Off Spring Break Welcome R&R

And I thought Winter break took forever to get here! Spring Break is finally days away and I cannot wait for this break. Seniors especially, we have hit a point in the year where we are tired of school and just need a break. Or at least that’s how many of my friends and I feel.spring break

Spring break will finally give me the time to catch up on some sleep, catch up on some school work, and let me have some time to be with friends and relax. So far, the only big assignment I have is in Psychology, and I really hope it stays this way!

One thing many seniors have to worry about when returning, is being careful not to get too lazy and letting senioritis get the best of you! For my friends and me, it will be hard to get too lazy because all through the month of May we have International Baccaulaureate testing. But for seniors, remember many schools require final grades and sometimes scholarships you receive can be taken away if you show through your grades that you just stopped caring. Sure your grades are fine now, but be sure to keep them up because you never know how bad grades can end up affecting you.

I hope everyone enjoys their spring break!



Spring Breakers Warned to Stay out of Mexico

Due to a recent outbreak in violence by Mexican drug cartels, the U.S. Department of Justice’s ATF Bureau has sent a clear warning to students to stay out of northern Mexico destinations this spring break. The State Department also warned students and other travelers to stay away from areas of prostitution and drug-dealing for the utmost security.

In recent weeks, communities like Tijuana and Rosarito Beach, just South of San Diego, have seen a surge in drug-related violence.

In a statement released by the ATF, special agent in charge John A. Torres said “I know that spring break is a rite of passage for many college students, however I would discourage traveling to places like Tijuana and Rosarito due to drug cartel violence affecting those areas. If they do decide to go, they should be sure and follow the information provided by the State Department in a recent Travel Alert.”
