Spring Break Safety Reminders

Congratulations on making it to the halfway point in the semester! Before you begin your well-deserved break, we have some tips and reminders for you to be smart and stay safe.

Alcohol Safety

  • The legal drinking age in all U.S. states is 21. Review the legal drinking age for your destination if you are traveling out of the country.
  • If you choose to drink, set limits before you begin.
  • Never leave your drink unattended.
  • Eat immediately before and while drinking.
  • Review more tips on how to Stay in the Blue.

Travel Safety

Whether you’re going on a trip with friends or going home to visit family, here are some important reminders:

  • Remember to lock your doors/windows and close blinds before you go.
  • Prepare to arrive at least two hours early for flights. High-volume travel times, like spring break, can lead to long check-in and TSA lines.
  • Utilize Central Student Government’s airBus to get to the airport.
  • Review international travel advisories before departing if you are traveling to another country.
  • Don’t leave items unattended at the airport or other public places.
  • Keep important travel documents, like passports and boarding passes, in a safe place with you at all times.

Staying on campus?

Us too! If you’re staying here in Ann Arbor, there are a couple of logistical things to keep in mind:

  • Most dining halls will be closed over the break. Bursley and South Quad dining halls will remain in service. To check hours of operation, visit the dining website.
  • If you need assistance on campus during spring break, DPSS can be reached 24/7 at 734-763-1131.

We hope you all have a restful, relaxing break. Remember to always trust your instincts and report any suspicious behavior to authorities.
