UC Davis’s winter break only has sixteen days and spring break has just a week. Other semester-system universities usually have a thirty-day winter break and a one-week spring break that is at different time than UC Davis’s. Traveling with childhood friends during breaks is a good way to maintain harmonious friendships. However, I have fewer chances to do that because of short winter and spring breaks.

    world. In finding sources to apply towards researching World War II’s influence on Appalachian Spring (1944), I immediately went to YouTube. The iconic film of Appalachian Spring is a great tool to use when looking at the choreography, set, costumes, and musical score.
