Alternative Breaks (aB) combine travel with community service over the winter and spring school breaks.The experiences, friends, and memories created through the aB program are unforgettable. Monthly workshops train, educate, and prepare participants for this life-changing journey. Trips are led by students trained as site leaders. Students interested in being site leaders should contact Brianna Colon at

The Honors College offers several aB programs per year.  These opportunities change each year. Past Honors aBs have included ecological and medical mission trips to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, and a rebuilding effort in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.. For more information about this year’s trips, please click here!
