1. Travel and Explore
With no final exams to worry about nor essays to turn in, you along with few of your friends can go out and see the places that you dreamt about all semester long. This is a great time to explore and learn more about the different states and culture in the U.S. With affordable living options like HostellingInternational USA, you can travel within your means without breaking your pocket too much.
2. Have your own holiday celebrations
During this time, you can find other international students who are in the same situations as you. As a way to get through this season, you can all come together to celebrate the holidays in different ways. From sharing hot chocolate, to building snowmen or even having a mini- dinner, spending this time with others is better than spending it alone. New friends, new memories!
3. “Better to give than to receive”
One of the ways to warm your heart this holiday season is to give back to those who need it the most. Volunteering at your local food bank by help sharing meals and laughter is one way to bring cheer to those who need it the most. Also, donating old coats, jackets and sweaters can also help others keep warm during this chilly season.
4. Learn a new sport
There are some sports where snow is essential in order to enjoy it. With activities like snowboarding, skiing and snow tubing, you are sure to have fun while exercising. After spending some time on the slopes and having snowball fights, warm off with a nice cup of hot cocoa to end your day right.
