The fall break will be October 21-October 24 right after the midterm season. Here are several ways you can relax during this fall break!
1. Go hiking
Going on a hike and enjoying the beautiful views while feeling the breeze in the fall. It is the best way to get a little fresh air and relax. The Battle Park & Forest Theatre is a good trail option if you want to stay close to campus. It is located at the corner of Country Club Drive and South Boundary Street in Chapel Hill. More information about the Battle park and Forest Theatre can be found here.
2. Visiting Your Family
A lot of students decide to go back home during Fall Break to enjoy family bonding time. If you plan on visiting home be sure to take your summer clothes and bring back your fall and winter clothes! This can give you more space in your room and less items to pack at Winter Break.
3. Spa Day in Your Room
Relaxing in your room, getting a lot of sleep or watching Netflix is always a good way to spend fall break. It is a good chance for you to take a breath after all the midterms and prepare for the following week of school. If you want to do something fun, you can pamper yourself with a DIY spa in the residence hall! There are tons of online recipes for facemasks. A DIY spa will help you sleep well and relax you from head to toe.
4. Have a Movie Marathon
A good all day movie marathon is one of my favorite ways to relax! Some of my favorite movie series include Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. It is nice to catch up on movies you with a bowl of popcorn or with a group of friends! You can watch some popular movies on UNC libraries website, check it out!
