Alternative Breaks

Want to meet new people? Get away for a while? Travel to new places? Make a difference? 

Join MC students across the College on a week or weekend packed with community service, meaningful reflections, and fun activities.

Alternative Winter, Spring, and Summer Breaks are 3 to 8 day service-learning trips that help students learn about social issues through direct service, issue education, and reflection.
