Spring break time has arrived for many college students across the country. One question that may need to still be sorted out: who’s paying for all that spring break fun?

In a survey by Global Newswire, it turns out that college students are fairly independent about their spring break finances. Two-thirds of college students will pay for their own spring break travel and activities. That same survey also broke down popular college destinations and their associated costs. For students on a budget, Myrtle Beach continues to be a solid bargain.

Perhaps your college student is more interested in service. Students should check with their school for an alternative spring break option. However, if the student prefers working outside the university’s connections, Volunteer HQ has a good collection of organizations that participate in alternative spring break. If such an alternative spring break involves international travel, be sure to check the State Department’s notes on student spring break readiness.
