YOUR GUIDE TO SPRING BREAK.
For over 75 years, the college Spring Break getaway has
been an American tradition. In 1936, Fort Lauderdale,
Florida became the first spring break destination.

When MTV decided to film their first spring break special
from Daytona Beach in 1986, a new hot spot was
established, and up to 200,000 students began to flock
to the Daytona scene each year.

Today, spring break has migrated to destinations across
the United States. Florida still stands out as the number one
destination–specifically Panama City Beach, which is
widely regarded as the spring break capitol of the world,
hosting more than half a million students each year!

South Padre Island, Texas offers students an affordable
alternative to Florida spring breaking. Close to 150,000
students visit South Padre Island each year.

BEER
PONG VS.
FLIPCUP
B
eer Pong and Flip
Cup: The quintessential games of the
student generation.
Played at many a college parties,
football tailgates, and on spring
break, both games involve drinking and should not be attempted
by the “lightweight.”
Which game is the better game? Having
been a raging debate for some time now,
most students are partial to one game or
the other. It’s like being a Republican or a
Democrat – you can’t be both.
We’ve asessed and summarized each, and,
finally, determined the winner of this party
game rivalry!
6
.com
Flip Cup: Essentially a team relay race, the
game focuses on the ability to chug a cup of
beer while maintaining hand-eye coordination, flipping your cup before the next
teammate can begin. The first team to make
PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY TRAVIS ROTHE | TROTHE.COM
it through all its players wins. The appealing factor of the game is that it’s a team
game and can create a very competitive
spirit. Imagine two teams representing two
different schools, squaring off for ultimate
supremacy. March Madness has nothing on
this new sporting rivalry!
The only flaw with the game is that women
have a major advantage (which many women won’t deem as a flaw!). Female competitors consistently beat their male counterparts, leaving them drunk and defeated.
Beer Pong: The true sport of party people.
Generally played in pairs of two, competitors attempt to toss or bounce ping pong
balls into cups, each of which is 1/3 full of
beer. When a player makes a shot into a cup
of the opposing team, a player from the opposing team drinks the contents of the cup
and removes it from the table.
The flaw to this game is that it is, well, it’s
just not appealing to many women. Many
ladies do not enjoy the game, nor do they
feel that they even want to compete, thus
ignoring it. This means one thing – when
playing the Pong, be prepared to be in a
room full of dudes. But, hey, for some guys,
a room full of dudes is a good thing.
The Winner: Flip Cup will always be a
relay-race style game. The rules are simple
and limited. Beer Pong however, is open
to many rule alterations. Just look up Beer
Pong online and you’ll find that there’s dozens of styles and formats for the game. And
for that reason alone, we can crown Beer
Pong as the game of college champions!
Yes, beer pong is king! IF guys can convince the girls to play, or at least enjoy the
insanity from the sidelines, it’s a great time
for all. Having a female contingent can also
increase the chances that there’s going to be
some wild and crazy cheerleading shenanigans, which should be all the motivation
guys need to get that ball in the damn cup
(how many times can you yell “flash”?).

JERSEY SHORE’S
Jenni “JWOWW”
Farley OPENS UP
ABOUT SPRING
BREAK mishaps,
her favorites,
and offers
some advice
for spring
breakers.
Q: Favorite Reality show
besides Jersey Shore?
A: Real Road/Road Rules Challenges.
These shows have been overshadowed recently, but I grew up loving
‘em. When they get the whole crews
together ... it’s must-see tv =)
Q: Does Situation deserve the
‘villain’ rep he has on the show?
A: Mike is awesome. I think he kind of
likes the ‘big brother’ role, so sometimes
he gets a bad rap...undeservedly. LOL
16
.com
Q: Top 5 songs currently on iPod:
A: Drake; Headlines | Foster The
People; Pumped up Kicks | Jay-Z &
Kanye; Paris | Adele; Someone Like
You | Rihanna; We found love
Q: Any embarrassing Spring
Break moments you’d share?
A: I had an appearance in Cancun last year. Before we left the
hotel I tried on a couple different
outfits,mixing and matching different
shoes. To make a long story short,
I showed up at the club with 2
DIFFERENT heels on. They were
similar, but definitely NOT the same
=) Had to send my road manager
back to get the match. Luckily we
hadn’t gone on yet.
Q: Do you have a word of advice
for girls getting ready to go on
their first spring break trip?
A: Live it up and do it big. This is
likely to be one of the most memorable weeks of your life. Keep your
group intact—buddy up and party
responsibly.
Q: Favorite Spring Break spot:
Daytona Beach, Panama City
Beach or S. Padre Island?
A: Panama City Beach. Amazing
strip, gotta love all the clubs and bars
on the beach. The whole vibe down
there is incredible. S. Padre Island

FINDING the
Perfect
S p r ing B r e a k
Swimsuit
Swimsuit shopping is challenging, and finding a suit that works best
for your body and personality isn’t always easy. No matter what size
and shape you are, buying a swimsuit should be fun and exciting.
As you get ready to hit the beaches for Spring Break think of handmade UjENA Swimwear. We’ve been designing and manufacturing
the largest selection of women’s swimwear in the world since 1984.
UjENA.com has something for everyBODY.
Choosing the right swimsuit is all about highlighting and accentuating
your body in the best possible way. We aim to make every customer
feel comfortable and confident in their UjENA swimsuit and we’re
always available to make that happen. Here are a few suggestions
to help you find the suit of your dreams!
large busted women
should look for suits that offer
structure and support.Top styles
that feature built in underwire
will give you the lift and support
you need. At UjENA.com, we have
more than 30 different underwire selections to choose from.
22
If you are looking to show off
your “backside”, definitely
consider one of many scrunch
back style bottoms. The
scrunch back style is one of
the hottest trends in swimwear design and will shape
you in all the right ways.
.com
small busted women must focus on a suit
that plays up the bust-line. Triangle shaped tops,
and tops with ruffles are very popular for 2012 and
even our underwire styles with push-up pads are
another excellent option.
For the plus sized woman,
suits that offer support and
coverage while still being sexy
are a must. UjENA Swimwear
offers many options that work
for the plus sized woman. The
Swimdress and Tankini are
great examples of suits that
offer support and coverage
while still being sexy.
For all you athletes, consider
a suit that adds an element of
femininity while still giving you
a fit that allows you to move
with ease. Halter tops and sport
tops paired with boy shorts offer
a great look and are also very
popular for 2012.

SPRING BREAK
ESSENTIALS
Sunscreen. You can’t have too much of it, especially
when you’re in, on, or near the water. “Authorities”
recommend at least an SPF 15. If you do get burned,
take aspirin or ibuprofen.
Water. You’re going to be in the sun. You’re going to
drink too much booze. You’re going to dance a lot. In
other words, you’re going to dehydrate. So drink water,
and drink plenty of it.
If you really want to enjoy your Spring Break,
you’ll need to be prepared. The following are
the basic essentials to living (and enjoying)
the life of a Spring Breaker:
VALID I.D. No Fake I.Ds! Doormen are great at
spotting what’s real and what’s fake. Even the
slightest suspicion will provoke them to check the
validity of an I.D., and you’ll be in a heap of trouble
if you’re caught trying to pass a fake I.D. as legitimate. Don’t risk it—only offer proper I.D.s!
Condoms. No explanation needed. Use them!
Club VIP Cards. Get the card. It’s going to save
you money and if you use it properly (ie: follow the
party schedule).

This amazing 23 mile
stretch of wide, hardpacked white sand beach
has long been one of
the hottest Spring Break
destinations in Florida.
Spring Breakers can take a drive down
16 miles of this famous beach, catch
some rays or ride the waves in the
Atlantic surf. There are awesome
deals on hotels right on the beach
and they have one of the hottest
nightclub scenes in Florida.
If you like to play on the beach, you will
love the activities that range from rock
climbing walls, beach volleyball and
Frisbee tournaments. You can surf the
waves, boogie board, jet ski, parasail
and other activities that revolve around
spending a great day at the beach.
You can even rent a motorcycle or a
bicycle and explore Daytona’s unique
drivable beach.
If you are up for making a day trip,
Daytona Beach is quite close to Walt
Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios in Orlando. Daytona
also has it’s own local attractions like
DaytonaUSA, an exhibit that celebrates
the history of NASCAR and the famous
Daytona International Speedway.
When the sun goes down the nightlife
really heats up. Daytona Beach has a

the clubs at night because Daytona’s

SURVIVING
rush events and dates. Stay focused
during the entire rush process and calm
throughout all of the parties and events.
Bring a journal and take notes, as things
become a blur after the events are over.
THE RUSH
It’s recommended that PNMs have a premade list of five questions for the first
round of activites. These questions may
include: How many hours per week do
members typically spend together? What
is your involvement in the community? What is an event that you look
forward to each year? What accomplishment, award, or campus event is your
sorority most proud of?
ILLUSTRATION BY TRAVIS ROTHE | TROTHE.COM
Some helpful advice for doing Rush right
J
ust as spring break is a steadfast
college tradition, so too is the
spring sorority and fraternity
rush. Going Greek may seem
intimidating, but don’t let that stand
in your way of what could be a very
positive and memorable chapter in
your college career.
Making the decision to join the “Greek
Life” is a big step, and deciding which
house to join can be a challenge. Potential
New Members (PNMs) should therefore be well informed before making a
decision that will heavily impact their
college experience.
The rush experience is a definite thrill
(or as some might describe, a roller
coaster ride), and can be totally different
depending if you’re a man or a woman.
In fact, the recruitment processes of
soririties and fraternities are quite different
50
.com
in terms of structure, event planning, and
overall organization.
Sororities are guided by the Pan Hellenic Association (PHA) and their rush
is formal, personable, and restrained.
Sorority rush consists of house tours,
multiple meet-and- greets with members,
charitable activities, cocktail parties
and various other performance-related
examinations and activities.
Fraternity rush, on the other hand, is
simple, informal, and energetic. The
male rush process relies on whether or
not a brotherly bond can be established
over conversation, games and jest.
Choosing not to follow any real set of
rules, the International Fraternity Council
(IFC) controls the process, but avoids
enforcing strict guidelines upon each
individual fraternity or chapter.
Refer to your campus newspaper, website or student handbook for important
You may also ask personal, but still
Greek-related, questions such as: What
made you pledge this sorority? Why do
you enjoy being a part of this fraternity?
What is the most challenging/rewarding
aspect of being part of Greek life?
Avoid asking intrusive questions, and
think about your responses to questions
posed to you. Just like your attire sends
a message about who you are, so does
your mouth. Remember that all of the members that
you meet were once PNMs as well. They
understand your anxiety and nervousness, so there's little need to be intimidated by the conversations and activities
you will encounter.
Do not allow yourself to be blinded by
your own stereotypes of each Greek organization. Attend each activity or party
with an open mind. It is most important
for PNMs to base their preferences on
his/her personal experience with the visit
and level of comfort with the brothers or
sisters of each organization.
In the end, the house you choose must
fit you. It’s like finding a good pair of
shoes-as soon as you put them on, you
just know they’re right. Look for a place
that makes you feel most like yourself,
and whose members make you feel the
most comfortable. Good luck, and enjoy!

Make the best of
your Spring Break:
DON’T do anything stupid that will
get you arrested. You’re going to do
stupid things, Just do your best not do
anything illegal. Sobering up in the back
seat of a state trooper vehicle is not a
good memory to bring back home.
Whether you’re an experienced Spring Break pro, or a first-timer,
you’ll want to follow (or at least attempt to follow) these simple
dos and don’ts. After all, you do want to return to class feeling like
you’ve had the trip of a lifetime.You deserve this!
The popular social site, Facebook,
has its own set of do’s and don’ts.
Everyone posts
something from
Spring Break on
his or her wall.
Unfortunately,
there’s a very good
chance you’ll be
posting a lot of unflattering photos
and perhaps more
than a few questionable wall posts. As a student,
you might think it’s fun to upload a
picture of you taking a Jäger shot,
but your (future) boss might not.
Just remember, your Facebook account can be a factor in your future
career and personal relationships.
Careless wall posts can damage your
reputation, and anything you post
can be accessed by the public. Stay
smart about what you should
and should not do on Facebook
while you’re partying.
DO post fun pics of your Spring
Break. Seeing as it’s supposed to
be a fun trip, and part of the fun is
sharing these moments, a photo of
you dancing at a club with white
60
.com
foam pouring from the ceiling, is
great, Especially if you look like
you’re genuinely having fun.
DON’T let your parents or coworkers see
all your tagged pics ,
and don’t let people tag
you in pictures without
your approval. You have
control of the pictures
you post, but don’t forget
you could appear in photos taken by others. Take
a minute to go over your privacy settings before heading to the airport.
DON’T post too many status
updates during your trip.
Rather than show people that you’re
tied to your phone, show them that
you’re too busy having fun - you’re
on vacation! No one really cares
what you’re doing every minute of
the day. Restraint is best.
DON’T post anything on Facebook between midnight and 6
am. You very well may post something regrettable, and by the time
you wake up at noon the following day, dozens of friends, distant
acquaintances, and family members
will have already seen it.
DON’T fall in love. A quick fling may
seem appealing, but no one wants to
hear you cry on the ride home because
you actually fell for the person you.
knew you’d never see again.
DO meet new people. After all, nothing
is better than meeting someone for a
week, becoming Facebook friends, and
then never seeing them again.
DO try something new. Parasailing is
something you can’t just do anywhere,
and most, if not all the beach destinations, offer it on the cheap so that you’ll
be interested in trying it. Ever go deep
sea fishing swim with dolphins, or ride a
jet ski? All of these activities should be
within your budget and will make your
experience more memorable.
DO use sunblock! Looking bronzed is
hot. Being as red as a lobster is not!
DO expect to be single if you’re in a
relationship prior to Spring Break. If
you’re significant other can’t join you
for the week, the facebook pics alone
will be enough to bury you. ,you’re planning to travel as a couple, you may be
thinking that this will be something of a
romantic getaway. Wrong. Chances are
you’ll both have a lot of explaining to do
during the long ride home.
Absolutely DO have fun.
