OTU #30 - Spring Break, Flu and Allergies, March Madness

We've got the flu!

Spring Break starts next week, but first we have to get through mid-term exams, projects, and a nasty flu epidemic on campus! Not to mention the beginning of allergy season in Oklahoma.

Next week we're off to Guatemala on a service immersion trip. Our next episode may be a little late, but with luck we'll have more sound-seeing audio to share with you. We also share some of our own thoughts about the whole "Spring Break" phenomena in college.

March also brings "March Madness" - the NCAA College Basketball tournament. Always exciting, we discuss the chances for the University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane, the C-USA tournament, and how we think some of the other teams will fare.

What are you doing for Spring Break? Send us an email or audio file and tell us where you're going! We'd love to have your feedback. Our address is onthe [at] or you can leave a comment here on the blog.
