Follow Spring Break Alternative from South Dakota
March 3, 2008
Greetings, and welcome to the Spring Break Alternative (SBA) Team “SoDak” Blog. In the coming week, I will be “embedded” with a group of Saint Anselm College students who are volunteering with “Re-Member,” a group based in Pine Ridge, South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
Each year, Saint Anselm College, through the office of Campus Ministry has been sending students to sites across the United States, and abroad to spend their spring break in an alternative fashion from the traditional warm and sunny beaches. Students work with host organizations at each site, doing everything from building bunk beds to serving in soup kitchens.This year, groups are traveling to locations ranging from Costa Rica, to Maine, Louisiana and South Dakota. In all, nearly 200 Saint Anselm students will be participating in the program this year. So sit back, and enjoy the experience of being an extended part of SBA: SoDak!
An introduction to your reporter: A junior politics major from Augusta, Maine, Cory True is a new media reporter for the Saint Anselm College Office of College Communications and Marketing. Cory is carrying an extensive array of technology with him, ensuring the full experience of the students will be captured. In the days ahead, look for video, audio, and many photos to accompany the text found on the Saint Anselm College Blog. A special thanks goes out to the staff of Re-Member, and the participants of SBA South Dakota for agreeing to participate in this truly unique opportunity.
