When I was a nontraditional student, it was rare that I got to take a REAL Spring Break. Because during breaks I had time to complete reports, portfolios, and get organized.
Because taking even a "small" full load of classes was hard with a capital H.
But I think a really organized nontraditional students COULD go on a REAL Spring Break. Especially if he or she had everything on schedule before Spring Break came around. Got a great Spring Break location? Or are you studying during your break? :-)
