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