Alternative Spring Break
Not every college student heads to the beach or even back home for Spring Break.
Forty-eight Eastern Kentucky University students (along with five faculty/staff learning partners) fanned out across the country for “Alternative Spring Break” March 10-14 and contributed more than 1,400 hours of public service.
Students from Eastern Kentucky University volunteered with non-profit agencies in eight cites from New York City to New Orleans and from Myrtle Beach to Decatur, Ala., during their spring break March 11-15.
While most Eastern Kentucky University students enjoyed a restful break from classes during Spring Break March 5-9, some students spent their time volunteering through EKU’s Alternative Spring Break Program in various locales from New York City to New Orleans, from Myrtle Beach, S.C. to Kansas City, Kan.
For the fifth consecutive year, many Eastern Kentucky University students took Alternative Spring Break trips this year – marking the largest number of teams from EKU to do so.
