How To Brea
R ob Carigan, a junior at
Pennsylvania state U.,
believes he can become a
spring break legend on a $5
Here's his plan: Grab a sleeping bag,
a Walkman, Doritos and Ramen noo-
dles. Hide in the university library for a
Impossible? Don't be so sure. "You
can get seven Ramen noodles for a
dollar, "Carigan notes.
But what if you want to escape
books? Maybe you're looking for aI
more traditional spring break, meaning
you pile into your car with 10 of your
friends, drive 'till you see a large mass of
water and proceed to spew chunks all
over those friends for the rest of the week . '
All this can be yours for a low, low price by fol- JOHN FOUNTAIN, COLLEGE HEIGHTS HERAI
lowing the advice of some frugal spring breakers: WESTERN KENTUCKY U.
QUESTION #1: How can you be sure you're getting the best deals?
Investigate spring break packages. (NEWSFLASH: You should have start
doing this in December.) Then, assemble a group comparable to the attendance
an Ohio State U. football game. The more people you have, the more bargaini
power you have.
Finally, when you arrive at your destination, scrounge for anything that mig
save money, such as spring break guides, coupon books, newspaper ads or "fina
cially secure, Christian families seeking to adopt."

QUESTION #2: When are the best deals at the clubs and bars?
"Sunday and Monday the red carpet rolls out," says Brad
Nelson, owner of Inter-Campus Programs (which sells spring
break packages) in West Chicago. Businesses try to atract students
' at the beginning of the week hoping they'll keep coming back.
Paige Deaton, a senior at Appalachian State U. who celebrated her
21st birthday on her week-long vacation to Key West, Fla., has another
suggestion: Say you're celebrating your birthday wherever you go.
Deaton, whose birthday was legitimate, says people bought her drinks
at bars all over town and she spent only $60 for the whole week. The
drawback: You can't visit the same bar twice.
QUESTION #3: Where is the cheapest place to stay without getting
Find a homeless shelter. During a typical spring break week,
Friends of the Homeless, a nonprofit organization in Daytona
Beach, Fla., sees about 20 spring breakers pass through their doors.
However, "most of them are not willing to work" and make a bee-
line for the phone to call mom for money, according to employ-
ee Ray Donnelly.
If the shelters won't take you, find a structure with at least three
walls and a blinking neon sign with the letters M-O-T- -L. "We
stuffed six people into a four-person room," says Chris Howard,
a senior at James Madison U. who went to Mardi Gras in New
vtq/ Orleans two years ago. "The most expensive part of our trip was
4phccab fare to and from Bourbon Street."

Giving Others a Break
When spring break is over, a lot of students return to
campus with bragging material: a new tattoo, the perfect
tan or tales of "eating the worm."
Last year, Kim O'Brien came back with something a
little different to brag about. A senior at the U. of
Wisconsin, Eau Claire, O'Brien spent her week in
Washington, D.C., living in the basement of a church
and teaching poor minority and disabled junior high
school students.
"The kids were really receptive," she says. "I think
they were used to older teachers who stressed discipline
more than education. One girl still writes to me."
Although last year O'Brien participated in the pro-
gram to meet a requirement for her education degree,
she plans to return this year as a volunteer. And the
trend toward similar "alternative breaks" has continued

QUESTION #4: What can you eat?
Seek out fast food joints.
In New Orleans, Howard and his friends ate the $1.99 meal deal at Rally's twice a
day, every day. "I will never eat Rally's again," Howard says.
Gwenael Denorme, a Miami U. of Ohio sophomore, hit Pizza Hut during her
Myrtle Beach, S.C., spring break trip. "One of my friends [pretended] that there
was hair in her food," Denorme says, adding that
they all got free meals.

noodles for a dollar. B

the past three years. "You visit people who are on the
edge of survival. They live in houses with no running
water, no electricity. We saw this kind of thing not just
on the Indian reservation, but also in the city."
About 90 students at the U. of Wisconsin work at six
volunteer sites, helping the homeless, migrant farm
workers, Native Americans or poverty-stricken residents
of the Appalachian mountains. While the projects are
hands-on, organizers emphasize educating student vol-
unteers about different lifestyles.
For those who want to volunteer, at least two organi-
zations are accessible nationwide:
*Habitat for Humanity International, (912) 924-6935.
This ecumenical Christian ministry recruits volun-
teers to build homes in areas of poverty or disaster.
Already there are 215 campus chapters.
"We are giving [the homeless] a leg up and a second
chance that no one ever gave them," says student
recruiter Carrie Toepper, a 1993 graduate of Ball State
U. "We're empowering them."
