Spring Break - OLT Style

There is not much beer pong or keg standing that takes place on Spring Break Trips run by our staff in the OLT.

The OLT offered 13 alternative Spring Break Trips for students this year - 118 college students took advantage of trips to GA, FL, NC, NH, AR, CA, and TN!

Students are challenged on spring break trips to engage issues of identity, community and spirituality. Our staff take students as diverse as the campuses they work on, and have the opportunity to travel and live with them for a week - apart from distractions of campus life.

(Joy's staff Emily Bean led a trip for a campus minister and his CMU students)

Conversations of consequence are had and lives are changed because students are introduced to truths about their identity as God's beloved, within communities that really practice love and forgiveness - all with attention paid to their uniqueness as a multi-dimensional being created in the image of God.
