President’s Blog: Spring Break – Engaging Learning Beyond the Classroom

The picture of Spring Break perpetuated by pop culture is one of partying on the beach. Yet, what we are increasingly witnessing at Middle Georgia State University each year is something quite different. While many of us take a deserved moment to recharge and relax—on or off the beach—during the break from classes, many of our students and faculty also take the opportunity to engage beyond the classroom.
This year, our students and faculty interacted with communities and colleagues both at home and abroad. Residence Life once again offered Alternative Spring Break, this year taking a group of students to Texas, where they volunteered with the largest food bank in the nation, the Houston Food Bank.
