UB Students Experience an Alternative Spring Break

For some University of Baltimore students, spring break does not mean sun, fun, the beach and "Don't bother me with learning, I'm out of reach!"
Instead, a group of students are currently residing in Mullens, W. Va., where they will spend an alternative spring break examining the connections between rural poverty and nutrition. Through UB's Be More Leadership and Community Engagement program and the Rural Appalachian Improvement League, these students are taking on a powerful comunity-building and learning experience in this cold, mountainous environment.
The students were selected based on their completion of a one-credit course on rural poverty and nutrition, and on their attendance of an orientation retreat and follow-up meetings.
