Honors students celebrate Fall Break

With the start of the new semester and throughout its progression, Honors students and staff have been in the full swing of classes and assignments. Fall break took place last week, and no classes were held on Thursday, Oct. 10 or Friday, Oct. 11. This was a nice break for many members of the Meredith College community. Below, read how a few students in the Honors Program decided to spend their Fall Break.

Katie Thompson, Class of 2021

“Over Fall Break, I visited my family at home in Lorton, Virginia where I took some day trips with friends and family to the historic town of Occoquan along the Potomac River, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as well as an apple orchard in Maryland along the way. We also went to Annapolis, Maryland. It has been a tradition in my family to have a crab feast in the Fall since that’s when crabs are in season and this year did not disappoint! As someone who loves to explore places both near and far, getting to spend time with friends while traveling was such a great way to spend my Fall Break. It was definitely one that I won’t forget, especially with Ring Week starting just days after!!”

Miranda Demers, Class of 2022

“I spent my fall break catching up with my family. I went home and hung out with my mom, my sister, and my grandparents. One thing my family did all together is we made pretzels from scratch. They were super yummy, and I had a great break!”

“I am in Sansepolcro, Italy this semester with the Meredith study abroad program. Over our break, a few of my friends and I traveled to Greece. It is such a beautiful country, and I am so glad I was able to visit during my abroad experience!”
