alternative spring break
University of Iowa students are participating in an alternative spring break to southern Mississippi.
Some University of Iowa students are opting for alternative, or service-learning, spring breaks including public health work in Memphis, Tenn., according to Paul Mintner with the UI Center for Student Involvement and Leadership. (Note: A paid subscription may be required.)
For many students, spring break means sun bathing and spending time with friends. For 15 students at the UI, this spring break will mean rolling up their sleeves and making a difference through a public health trip where they will work with people with HIV and AIDS.
