Reasons Why March is One of the Best Months

  1. Two beautiful little words: SPRING.BREAK.

    It doesn’t matter if you’re heading to a tropical vacation, (but if you are I’m really, really jealous) a break from midterm chaos and cramming in the library can do all of us Rutgers students well. Also, I think I’ll definitely be okay without dining hall food for a few days. So get your tan on if you’re one of the lucky ones going to Cancún, or just hit up your hometown friends and enjoy some much needed rest.

  2. March Madness.

    Basketball fan or not, you can’t even deny that filling out a bracket and competing with your friends isn’t super fun. And if you’re anything like me, you LOVE to brag to your dad and boyfriend about how you beat them every year. Sorry guys! Pro tip: sometimes it’s okay to choose the team who has the nicest uniform, never forget that.

  3. St. Patricks Day.

    Bring me all the green bagels, shamrock shakes, and four-leaf clovers you got. This girl is only 25% Irish, but it still counts, right?! If you’re feelin’ wild, head out to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in NYC for a good (but inevitably crowded) time. If not, soak in all the Irish fun with some of your friends and family.

  4. Summer is ~almost~ coming.

    Has this tease of warm weather been extremely painful for anyone else? Because I don’t think walking outside in the brisk, 40 degree air has ever hurt more after being in the hot 70s. I know summer is still months away, but Daylight Savings is March 12th which means extra hours of sunshine! Goodbye winter, helloooo spring.
