Why Your High School Grad Trip Is the Best Thing to Do Before College

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Your senior year of high school is a whirlwind of emotions.  You are scared about going to college and leaving home, but can’t wait to get out on your own and have no one else’s rules to follow but your own.  You are so over the school work, projects and tests that are being thrown your way, yet you still stress and strive to get good grades in hopes of your dream college accepting your application.  Most importantly, you are sad to leave your home friends behind and wonder if you’ll ever be able to meet anyone as awesome as they are at college.

Graduating high school and moving onto college is not an easy task.  Spending 12 years in school with the same friends and then being expected to leave them and venture into the new world of college is sad and scary all at the same time.  Your senior year is spent being the “big man on campus” with those friends trying to make as many memories as you can before August rolls around and you say your “see you laters”.

Why not go on a high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip with those friends?  Going on a high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip is the best thing you can do before college and this is why:

1. This may be the only time you can all go away together.

 Once you go off to college, you will all have different Spring Break weeks and your schedules will be all over the place.  Trying to coordinate several schedules of school breaks, summer jobs and internships is not an easy task; chances are, you won’t be able to find a time that works for everyone.

 

2. You will cherish your Senior Trip and create memories that will last a lifetime.

The memories that you make on your high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip are memories that can never be replaced by any other trip.  You will probably go on Spring Break in college with your new friends, but no one can compare to your high school friends from home.  Having that last hoorah with them is something every high school senior should do.

 

3. Get a taste of what college is like with the comfort of your home friends and GradCity staff around you. 

Your high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip will give a taste of what the social scene is like in college.  You will meet new people and go to awesome parties, but you can do that knowing your friends and all of the GradCity staff are there to help if you need anything.

 

4. Celebrate your high school graduation the right way! 

Graduating high school is a big deal and you should celebrate!  We cannot think of a better way to celebrate your accomplishments than on a tropical beach with all of your best friends.

 

5. Get your bronze on before summer starts!

One of the major perks of your high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip is the gorgeous tan you will come home with.  No one wants to start their summer with their pale winter skin.

 

6. Experience another culture and travel before going to college.

Your high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip is about more than just basking in the sun and going to the best parties.  Depending on the destination you choose, there are several day excursions that allow you to explore more than just the resort.  Traveling is an amazing experience, and getting to travel before college is something we recommend to everyone.

We could go on and on about why going on a high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip is something everyone should do before going to college.  It is an amazing experience and you won’t want to miss out!  If you haven’t planned your high school Spring Break or high school Grad Trip yet, click here or on the button below.  We will get you all of the info you need to start planning the best week of your life.
