UREC

Description

Community service is important to University Recreation. UREC has offered both Alternative Thanksgiving and Alternative Spring Break trips, including some to New Mexico, California and the Bahamas. The emphasis of each trip is on serving others, as students engage in volunteer service for a week as a counter to "traditional" spring break trips.
