The Office of Student Life would like you to apply for a spot on the Alternative Spring Break Trip 2015.

If the cost is prohibitive, please indicate this on the application and in some cases scholarships will be awarded.

Once selections are made students will be asked to sign a contract for the trip and we cannot have anyone back out of the trip after contracts have been signed.
