Papers, exams, reports, and other school requirements will take its toll on even the most studious of college students. That’s why as the Christmas holidays loom near, college students are getting excited to catch a much-needed break from school. However, as we all know, the Christmas break can come and go in what feels like a few seconds.

If you don’t want to miss any opportunity to make the most of the holiday season, here are a few ideas worth trying as soon as, or even before Christmas break starts:

1 – Bake!

Nothing compares to the smell of freshly baked cookies and pastries during the holidays. Whether you have younger siblings who want to give Santa milk and cookies or you want to make a gingerbread house for the holidays, preheat the oven and start gathering the ingredients!

2 – Meet Up With Old Friends

If you go to college outside your town, don’t forget to let your old friends know you’re back for the holidays. It’s the perfect time to catch up and exchange wild college stories while enjoying a festive drink.

3 – Decorate Your Dorm

Before you leave the dorm to go home, add some holiday cheer to your college dorm room by putting up a couple of college Christmas ornaments. Doing this might lighten the mood and help you get through the rest of the term in the hopes of going home for the holiday break.

4 – Stay Active

Even when the temperature drops, be sure to get some exercise done just to stay fit and active. Going out to ice skate or going to the indoor gym are activities that will keep the heart pumping throughout the holidays.

5 – Spend Time With Family

The holiday season is a time for family, be sure to schedule more than just a day with your parents and siblings. Although it might just be nice to just sleep the entire Christmas break, bonding with your family should also be a priority for any college student.

6 – Reorganize Your Bedroom

If this is the first time you’ve been home since leaving for college, your old bedroom might seem immature to you now. Don’t hesitate to clean out some things that you’ve outgrown and donate them to a shelter if possible. Then it’s time to put up some College Christmas ornaments for additional university spirit.

7 – Volunteer

When dropping off donations, don’t forget to ask the shelter if they need volunteers. The Christmas season is the best time to help as there is an influx of the less fortunate living in shelters. Spread cheer, warmth, and love this Christmas season by offering your time to volunteer.

8 – Relax And Enjoy

College life is busy and stressful and there’s no better time to just relax and stay at home than Christmas. Make yourself a cup of hot cocoa, find a good show to watch, and just enjoy your break from school. Because before you know it, you’ll be diving back into textbooks and writing reports sooner than you would like.
