Alternative Spring Break   

Alternative Spring Break

Do you enjoy getting giving back and not afraid to get your hands dirty? In the spirit of helping people during each Spring Break, Student Life invites WilmU students to gain a life-changing experience by traveling to different locations in the United States including New Jersey, Virginia, New Orleans and more! Students will volunteer with various non-profit organizations and give back to different communities in need.

Each Fall, a group of students participate in a one day interactive and engaging retreat filled with teambuilding, leadership development, and more! Once students complete the Summit, they are eligible to apply to become paid Student Ambassadors for the University. Throughout the year, the group of students will also work together on a particular community service project.
