Most Plan to Travel, Spend Big for Thanksgiving Break

For those who celebrate, Thanksgiving often means lots of travel to see family sometimes scattered across the country (or the globe, for that matter). For others, the break next week means a chance to get off campus and see new places.ÿ Unfortunately, going anywhere means cracking open the ol’ checkbook. Many who forgo the break choose to funnel their resources into making the end of the semester break one to remember. What are your plans this week for the holiday break?
