Along with celebrating the holiday in a special place, the students are excited to spend time with their family. Abby Cunningham, who is a junior and celebrating at her home in New Jersey, loves seeing her extended family during the holidays. “I don’t get to see my brothers often because they’re away at college. I look forward to the holidays so I can catch up with them and have some bonding time.” Alyssa Dibartolo, a junior, also will be spending Easter Sunday among family and friends. “On Easter, my whole family spends the morning at mass and then we go out to brunch. My favorite part about it is seeing friends and family that you don’t normally get to see. I always cherish this time I get to spend with them, since they live hours away. It’s truly a blessing to me.”

No matter where you are for Easter or who you’re with, make the most of this holy time and enjoy the day!
