Do What Matters

Stuff to do on/off-campus Tomorrow & Friday

| No Comments

Want to spend your winter break wearing shorts on the Gulf of Mexico? Spend a week volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, meeting new friends and building a home for a family in need. You will also be able to:

- Visit the city that bankrupted the Ku Klux Klan of Alabama
- Hold a moon rock and experience zero-gravity at the Houston Space Center
- Hang out at the BEACH of course! :)

Winter Break trips are week-long volunteer events that are great resume builders and a lot of fun. In addition, these trips cost only $400, and if you are over 21 and willing to drive you will receive a $40 discount! Trips leave on January 7th and return to campus on the 14th. You can choose between Houston, TX or Mobile, AL for your winter break adventure!

More information can be found at http://www.uofmhabitat.org/get-involved/trips or you can email trips@uofmhabitat.org with any questions.
