This spring break, Rollins students are making an impact both at home and abroad. Through the Immersions: Citizens Take Action program sponsored by the Office of Community Engagement (OCE).
Three groups of students are participating in Alternative Spring Break programs in the country: Florida Panhandle: Water Conservation, Miami: Change Agents and Community Empowerment, and Travel to Texas: A Focus on Criminal Justice. Continue to check back to The Sandspur for pictures and updates about their experiences.
In addition to the three previously mentioned experiences, this year, Rollins students, faculty, and staff have gone a step farther. OCE offered an opportunity to give back abroad in the ASB 2012: Service in Abaco. Throughout this week, these students have been working with children from Every Child Counts (ECC), a school for children with special needs. Follow their experiences at their blog:
