1. Don't get arrested:
This should be a no-brainer, especially for those planning to leave the States. Think twice if you want to have another drink or buy some drugs from a stranger. If you do, don't be surprised when you wake up in a foreign jail and the treatment there is far from room service.

2. Don't have unprotected sex:
According to the American Social Health Association, two-thirds of all new sexually transmitted infections occur in people 25 years of age or younger. Don't let one night with a stranger ruin your life. The first thing on your list to pack should be condoms.

3. Don't bring your significant other:
Use Spring Break to catch up with your friends. Since you started dating that new girl or guy, you've probably missed out on some quality time with your pals. There's no better way to party than with people you know and trust.

4. Don't go overboard with your parents' credit cards:
If your parents find that extra thousand dollars on their Visa, they won't be happy. While it won't directly affect you while you're on spring break, it might leave a bitter taste afterward. If you don't feel like working more than 40 hours a week just to pay your parents back, know your limits.

5. Don't get discouraged if you're not going anywhere:
Yes, there are poor students in this world. But there are a million things you can do to have a great Spring Break. Camp in your backyard or take a trip to Canyon Lake. Learn how to kayak on Tempe Town Lake. Just use your imagination and you'll have a blast.
