Hi everyone! Spring Break is a rejuvenating time for all the students that gives them the opportunity to relax, vacation with friends and get a head start on the rest of the semester. For my Spring Break, I chose to work on campus at the Community Service-Learning Center and explore Minneapolis with my roommates.
International Students are allowed to work on-campus for 20 hours per week. However, the U allows its students to work on-campus for more than 20 hours over breaks including winter break, summer break and spring break. The payroll schedule for F1 and J1 students can be found here: http://www1.umn.edu/ohr/prod/groups/ohr/@pub/@ohr/documents/asset/ohr_asset_127082.pdf
It was a great experience to work over the break as it allowed me to stay on a routine and at the same time, enjoy sightseeing with my roommates. It was a week full of laughter, fun, great memories and an amazing day at Mall of America!
