Leaves are fallen and winter is coming. As winter comes, vacation is coming closer. Students used to make a plan that they couldn’t accomplish during the semesters. Then what kind of plans do they have? We conducted a survey of 184 CWNU students to ask their vacation plans.
Firstly, we asked, ‘what’s your plan for winter vacation?'
Many students (31%) answered they are planning ‘trips‘ and 44 students (24%) answered they will prepare for employment. 32 student (17%) answered they are planning to study and 24 students (13%) said they will work a part-time job. Otherwise, 28 students (15%) said they had plans to read a book or join the army.
Secondly, we asked, ‘How much do you fulfill the plans after vacation?’ The students tend to make a huge plan because they don’t have enough time to perform what they want during the semester. However, they didn’t fulfill their plans during vacation as they expected. Only 24 students replied they completed the plans up to 90-100%. Response of 50-60% (80 students) captured the most charge of the graph.
The third question was ‘what do you want to do if you don’t have to prepare for employment?’ The university changed as a place where students prepared the employment, not the place to continue studies deeply. From freshmen, some students prepared to get a job and civil service examination. Due to the employment, students who got certified or acquired language score like TOEIC are growing. The majority of student (83%) wish to travel and it was predominantly ranked No. 1. The others captured just a little percentage: studies, part-time job, reading a book and etc.
Lastly, we inquired into this question for students who didn’t make a plan. We asked students to suggest activities for others. 108 students (58%) suggested going backpacking in domestic or foreign countries and 34 students suggested acquiring a language score (ex,TOEIC). Getting a certificate (18 students/10%), going abroad for language studies (16 students/9%) and outside activities (10 students/5%) followed.
As much as winter gets closer, many students look forward to it so much. A long and sweet winter vacation will start after final exams. However, to enjoy it and have a meaningful time, you’d better make a solid plan.
