Alternative Spring Break Pictures

Here are pictures culled from a variety of past University of Toledo Alternative Spring Break Trips.

students cleaning Savage Hall
Before any trips actually start, students work on fundraising projects like cleaning Savage Hall after a basketball game to offset the costs of attending and keep prices low.  This is also a chance for groups to meet each other before the trip!

 Students ride in van to community service event
Ah, the van ride!  Transportation for the trips varies with just how far you are going.  Students go by van, by train, and by plane and start the group bonding by spending many hours in a confined space together!  Card games, yes!

 sleeping bags
Luxury accomodations are essential for Spring Break, sleeping bag not included.

students relaxing after hards day work
All the Spring Break Trips include reflection after the service - because the trips are as much about students learning about themselves and others and pushing their personal boundries as they are about doing service for others.  Remember, you don't learn by doing, you learn by thinking about what you're doing!
