Visit Puerto Rico or Florida on an Alternative Spring Break

Join a group of your peers and experience a new community during spring break! Spots are still available for this spring’s Alternative Spring Break trips, which are planned and led by Student Leadership and Involvement staff. During the ASB trips, students participate in hands-on service activities, exploration, and reflection as they get to know a community outside the Keweenaw. Learn more.
