Make SDSU Part of Your Spring Break


For students here at SDSU, spring break is just around the corner, so everyone is getting excited about filling up all that free time. For some of you, that long awaited break may have already come and gone, but here are some cool activities that will help jazz up your break or upcoming weekend. With these suggestions you’ll be able to make San Diego part of your break no matter where you are.

If you are in San Diego…

Between the hustle of classes, scheduling extra–curricular activities, and hanging out with friends, it’s easy to forget we live in one of the most beautiful and tourist driven cities in the world. If you are a prospective student living in the area or a current student at SDSU, take some time to explore your city. Go to the beach and ride the famous Giant Dipper roller coaster at Mission Beach, or grab some friends and take a day trip to see the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Most students pick SDSU for its great location. Don’t let another school year pass before you realize you haven’t checked out the city!

If you know you’ll be here soon…

For the many students who were just admitted to SDSU (Congrats!), it feels like August couldn’t be farther away. Keep yourself pumped up for the move to San Diego State by exploring what the campus and surrounding city has to offer. Take a look at a few of the more than 200 student organizations and contact a couple by e-mail about getting on their mailing list so you’ll be plugged in before you even get here. Scour Twitter for the latest San Diego venues and events. Following local businesses, bloggers, and of course SDSU will keep you in the loop regarding interesting, and often budget-friendly, activities you’ll be able to enjoy in just a few months. Do a quick San Diego search and start following!
