Spring break is a fun time of year for most students. It means relief from studying and hitting the books and is a good opportunity to relax and recover. For most students, though, spring break means partying, drinking, sex, and a whole lot of trouble. Partying during spring break has taken on epic proportions in the last couple of decades. High school seniors and college students travel to sunny places to have fun and cut loose, but they often take serious risks. Parents of students: beware. Spring break is a dangerous time.
