U. sophomore Tanner Olsen decided to drive to a resort city in northern Mexico popularly known as Rocky Point with several of his friends for spring break because "this year I decided to go on an adventure." Other friends are opting either for Lake Havasu or Moab.
He said cost wasn’t the determining factor.
Choosing a destination
In a 2011 survey of 251 Oklahoma State University students, here are their top five considerations for selecting a spring break getaway:
1 » Geographic location
2 » Positive attitude toward destination
3 » Total trip expenses
4 » Provides convenient accommodations
5 » Reasonable price, compared with other destinations
"It was a consideration, but it wasn’t a huge issue. I just want to lie on the beach and do nothing, just relax after a hard week of midterms."
