The Alternative Break 2018 program sent 4 groups to different location to do volunteer work in 3 different states and one different country.

The ISU nursing program took students to St. Anne Jamaica where they ran a medical clinic in which they assessed and treated over 150 patients in addition to giving food to families in need. In New Mexico the student were able to work in a childrens home each day. They painted, and did other organizational tasks in addition to playing with an interacting with the children each day. In South Carolina, Union Board took a group of students lead by their advisors to PAWS wildlife sanctuary where they renovated fawn enclosures and learned what a true rescue is about. Finally in West Virginia a group of amazing students braved the cold and the snow to clean and prepare camp sites for the opening camping season that starts in two weeks. These trips forever change students lives and are a great way to give back and to see our world.
