Alternative Spring Break (ASB) programs are the perfect way to travel, volunteer, and see some sights along the way. In most cases, students are able to work in teams for a specific cause or area of interest they are passionate about.
If you are sick of hearing about the productive/worldly/influential things that people did on spring break while you were at home watching Netflix or drinking in Florida, I get it. But you should also probably stop reading. Because this post will make you vomit.
USC students and spring break have stereotypical incarnations as bacchanalia at places like Cabo San Lucas, but this spring break I had the pleasure of sharing a day with a group of USC students who were spending their week volunteering for the National Park Service in Death Valley.
