SPRING BREAKERS TURN TO SERVICE

This week 143 University of Utah students will devote more than 5,000 hours of service around the western U.S. and Canada through the U’s Alternative Breaks program organized through the Bennion Community Services Center.

MAKE A BREAK FOR IT

Alternative Breaks give students the opportunity to take an entire spring or fall break and immerse themselves in an issue, travel to a designated city and serve side-by-side with community partners dedicated to that cause.

BEYOND FACEBOOK

There’s more to social networking than Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, according to a U professor cataloging alternative sites and services built as a critical response to corporate social media.

WHEN TERRORISTS ATTACK

Amos Guiora, a professor at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, has organized a counter-terrorism simulation at the law school for students to experience the pressure of decision makers.

TRANSFORMING LIVES

Students give back during fall alternative breaks. Deadline for spring break trips is Nov. 27.

On the road

School is back in session and due to ongoing campus construction, parking will be challenging. Ditch your carβ€”and the headacheβ€”and use alternative modes of transportation, including the campus shuttles with revised routes that are even faster.

MAKING NEW TRAILS

First-generation students experience an alternative break designed just for them.
