Oftentimes in business school, its easy to get caught up in school work, or group meetings, or even school organization events. The pressures on your time can make finding distractions challenging. But just like in the working environment, finding time to “get away” is important. Fortunately, both UMD and the DC area offer lots of opportunities to forget school work for awhile. Personally I’ve opted for UMD sporting events, attending a few football and basketball games, and exploring some of DC’s attractions. Whatever your interests there are things around here to do, and that’s a great way to help keep your sanity.
