Sometimes college students get a bad rep these days (especially around the time when The Princeton Review publishes its top party schools list). But let’s give credit where credit is due – college students work hard, and they handle a lot between a heavy class load, extracurricular activities and attempting to maintain a social life. By now, the college semester is in full swing, and as many of us know from experience, the stress is definitely starting to pile on.

Fall Spa Week takes place from October 15-21 this year, which means it falls right in the middle of midterms time for most universities. College students could definitely use some relief from the endless days of office hours and nights filled with energy drinks and no sleep.  Luckily, Spa Week takes place in some of our favorite college towns – so even for the student on a tight budget, just sit tight… relaxation is in sight!

So be a good sport and book a treatment for your son, daughter, niece, nephew or friend (or yourself, if you’re the student!) — and reward someone for her hard work:
