Spring break travelers cause busy day for Northampton train station

Hampshire County

All of the five colleges in Hampshire County are off for spring break next week, making for a busy travel day in Northampton.

A viewer sent us the above photo of the train stop in Northampton, with a long line of people with suitcases ready to get on board. Near Smith College, you could see suitcases being wheeled to buses and cars. By the afternoon, students said the campus was already cleared out. 

“It is already pretty quiet, we’re already most of us done with midterms,” said Carla Puentes a Smith College sophomore. “So people are already moving, going where they’re going to go for spring break.”

Most students are due back on campus by March 18.
