Alternative Spring Breaks

Spring Break is a time of relaxation and sun seeking for many college students. For a number of Seattle U students, it will be an opportunity to be "men and women for and with others" by working on service projects nationally and around the globe. Our students will be working in New Orleans on tornado and post-Katrina rebuilds, working on infrastructure at an orphanage in Belize, learning about the economic challenges in Appalachia and building homes in Mexico.

Encourage your student to seek out opportunities for service. Campus Ministry, the Center for Community Engagement, Xavier Global House and numerous student clubs provide ways to engage in service for a day, week, quarter or all year.
