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.
At MGA, Business major and student organization leader Markel Greene discovered academic talent he didn’t know he had.

Roger Rambo, a Middle Georgia State junior majoring in Information Technology, is the winner of the University’s first “capture the flag” (CTF) competition, called the Cyber Knights Banner Challenge, held in February 2018.
Several other IT majors at Middle Georgia State (MGA) also participated in the CTF event, designed to help teach students about specific aspects of cybersecurity.
In computer security, CTF is a computer security competition and one of the fastest ways to help students learn techniques for protecting systems against cyberattacks. CTF contests are usually designed to serve as an educational exercise to give participants experience in securing a machine, as well as conducting and reacting to the sort of attacks found in the real world.
