Hilltop Tips: Spring Break Alternatives

While most St. Edward’s University students return home during Spring Break, you may be interested in the alternatives that are offered. Each program presents an opportunity to appreciate diversity and explore personal values and is part of the transformative experience that is the hallmark of a St. Edward’s education.


Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break If you’re looking for a nontraditional spring break activity that lets students explore their role in the global community, St. Edward’s has several programs where they can experience social justice issues and learn about diversity through service and reflection. It’s called Alternative Spring Break and students choose from six different locations, ranging from local Austin to New York City.


The Alternative Spring Break program is offered through Campus Ministry and is open to students of all faiths. Students must apply to be considered and must be willing to raise the necessary funds to support their trip. The application process, FAQs and forms are available online.


Students who participated in the 2004 Alternative Spring Break were featured on CNN and in other media. View the press release and
