Media note:

Abilene Christian University's annual spring break holiday starts March 9. Classes will resume Monday, March 19.

While many Abilene Christian University students spend their spring break holiday performing mission work on Spring Break Campaigns, others prepare for a traditional break of relaxation and fun.

ACU students will be traveling throughout the world, including Lisa Dickson, senior social work major from Longview, and three of her friends. The foursome is going to New York City to sight-see and attend Broadway shows.

"I couldn't have a better opportunity to get away and have fun before I graduate," Dickson said.

Recreational international travel is not uncommon among university students. Courtney Ford, senior elementary education major from Colleyville, is travelling to Paris for the week with her mother. Ford said the Paris trip is a graduation gift from her mother. After Paris, the pair will meet Ford's father in Spain to attend a Christian workshop.

"While having a lot of fun, I am looking forward to spending time with my parents," Ford said.

Andy Myers, senior electronic media and theatre major from Mesquite, is a member of a band The Danes, and they will be playing in Dallas. Myers, who plays guitar, said they are oneo f four bands scheduled to play at a Dallas-area Bennigan's restaurant on St. Patrick's Day.

"I think the Irish blood in me is excited about playing over spring break," he said.
