Each Fall and Spring semester the Leadership & Volunteerism component of the Department of Student Activities plans an ALTERNATIVE BREAK for WKU Students.  These ALTERNATIVE BREAKS are held during the traditional Fall and Spring Breaks, and gives students the opportunity to spend their time “giving back” through various community service projects. 

 This year our Alternative Fall Break staff will be selecting only 20 students to attend.  Students will experience an exciting service-learning adventure at ONCE UPON A TIME ADVENTURES, which is situated between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Cherokee National Forest.  The cost of the trip is $50.00 per student and applications are due by Monday, September 24, 2012.  The $50.00 fee covers transportation, lodging, and meals for the entire time.  Dates for the trip are October 4-7, 2012.

 If you have students within the organization that you advise that you feel would be interested or benefit from this opportunity, please forward this information to them.  Our website has been updated with this information, and links to the application and additional information can be found at:

 The coordinator for this year’s Alternative Fall Break is Mindy Johnson, Assistant Director of Student Activities for Leadership & Volunteerism.  Please contact Mindy at, or 745-2060, with any questions.
