Alternative Break Trips are an amazing opportunity for students to visit new places, meet & work with new people, and help those in need. Students interested can check this website for information on trips as soon as it becomes available. Each trip has an application process that includes essays and an interview. The cost of trips is very affordable and a majority of the cost is covered by the Office of Student Life & Leadership. Students who have participated on an alternative break trip are encouraged to apply to be a site leader for a future alternative break trip. Trips are led by the Assistant Director of Student Life & Leadership and additional Student Affairs staff members.
