March is the month of college spring breaks and, let’s face it, some people raise a glass or two in the name of temporary freedom from homework.

Many colleges and universities in the U.S. adjourn for a week-long vacation sometime in the months of March and April. Originally intended as a mid-semester break from studies, it has evolved for many students into a ritual of hard partying someplace warm. The travel industry predicts that more than 1.5 million students will take part in this annual migration.

A week of fun in the sun can sound innocent enough, but watch some of the videos of the spring break bacchanals on Youtube or the images on TV shows and in the movies such as the upcoming film "Spring Breakers starring James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.
