Wes Kids Did Cool Shit Over Spring Break

springbreak

We are (only) a week back from break, so hopefully everyone’s stopped asking what you did during it. These questions can be genuine…or loaded and empty. They can also be opportunities for class privilege to shine strong. However, every year, a few student groups and Wes departments help facilitate some truly dope spring break trips that bring students from around campus together and get them out of central Connecticut for a few days. Doing spring break with a student group or academic department often lifts organizational (and sometimes financial) burdens off of individual students and also tends to be hella fulfilling and really fun.

So, we’ve reached out to a few groups who did cool shit over break and put together a roundup post of some cool Wes spring breaks. We apologize to any thesis writers who may have been here all break nibbling on a Twizzler in their thesis carrel every day, but we promise we’ll make it up to you. But for now, take a look at these folks’ fun times:

Spring Break Trips Round-Up

Spring Break 2014. Some went home.  Some went to the beach.  Some stayed on campus.  And some went on spring break trips, participating in a wide variety of activities ranging from volunteering to performing to playing frisbee. Wes took the country by storm, traveling to places with exotic state birds such as the pelican, the brown thrasher, and the lark bunting. Take a look at what some of your friends were up to:

ServeUp trip to New Orleans

The Wesleyan chapter of ServeUp traveled to New Orleans to help rebuild communities and work with Katrina victims. ServeUp is a program under InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, a network of campus ministries. Stacy Uchendu ‘17 graciously educated me about their experience.

The purpose of the trip, in addition to rebuilding, was to explore the relationship between social justice and faith for Christians and non-Christians alike. Eighteen Wes students were part of a larger group of 300 university students who worked in the Lower Ninth Ward, one of the hardest-hit areas of the city.  Some students built a whole house in three days for the St. Bernard Project.  Others painted houses in cheerful colors to brighten up the community.  A third group worked on a community garden at Our School at Blair Grocery (check it out! Blair Grocery rocks).

The students found it rewarding to work as a team and make closer friendships with their peers.  They learned from the perspectives of the Lower Ninth Ward residents: it is hard to believe that nine years post-Katrina, there is still so much to rebuild.  In addition, they were grateful for others’ openness to discussing faith without judgement.

Back on campus, the students hope to bring more attention to ServeUp, for people of all faiths or no faith, for those who just want to learn about social justice, or for those who want to go to NOLA.
