Freshman applications for Alternative Spring Break due today
11 a.m., Sept. 13, 2013--Midnight tonight, Friday, Sept. 13, is the deadline for freshmen students to apply for Residence Life & Housing Alternative Break (RLHAB).
This is the inaugural year for the program that encourages students to participate in established service opportunities sponsored by Residence Life & Housing, such as MLK Day of Service and weekly service initiatives. The program culminates in a week spent with Coastal Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County, N.J., restoring and rebuilding communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Housing application opens Sept. 1
“RLHAB is open to freshman students currently living on campus,” said program coordinator Tierra Fields, residence hall coordinator in Residence Life & Housing. “This encourages students to interact with like-minded peers who share an interest in serving the community.”
Participants will meet throughout the fall semester to discuss important issues related to the spring break trip.
