Area Students Participate in Carleton College Alternative Spring Break
2013 Apr 15Students of Carleton College participated in the Alternate Spring Break program. Carleton's Acting in the Community Together (ACT) program hosts Alternative Spring Break trips every year, to which students must apply and be chosen to participate. Students spend the week-long trip working with Habitat for Humanity affiliates and service-learning sites in the upper Midwest. The three destinations available for the students this year were Waterloo, Iowa; Pine Ridge, S.D.; and Wolf Ridge Sawmill Valley Farm in Finland, Minn. Upon their return, students documented their experiences and combined them into a photo-essay exhibit addressing the social and economic issues affecting each of the partner sites. These are displayed in the Carleton library throughout spring term.
