Students from the student organization Alternative Spring Break (ASB) take time to pose during an outdoor service project at the Howard Christensen Nature Center in Kent City, MI.
Between Feb. 26 and March 3, students from Davenport University will pack up and
head to Florida to swim in the ocean and visit Disneyworld, fly to Las Vegas and cruise the strip or perhaps travel overseas to a foreign country half way around the world. Spring Break is next week, and it is a preview of the relaxing four months that we get to enjoy here in Michigan during the summer.
However, fourteen DU students will take in a much different Spring Break experience, one that will change not only their lives, but will make a positive impact on the environment and the people they meet along the way during Davenport University’s Alternative Spring Break service trip. Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a registered student organization that comes together for a very special reason. These students are active in volunteerism and understand what it means to make a difference. After completing a local service project at the Howard Christensen Nature Center, the group is prepared to travel over 600 miles to take their service to the next level.
