Nine young men and women from the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University in central Minnesota will spend next week at Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities for an Alternative Break Experience. This will be the third year in a row that students from CSB/SJU have trekked to the CPD.

The group will arrive in Logan on Sunday, March 2 and leave again on Saturday, March 8. They will stay with Cache Valley host families for the week.

The CPD will host a welcome lunch for the students on Monday, March 3 in Room 173. Come and enjoy sandwiches, chips and cookies while visiting with the students and your colleagues.

During their week at USU, the group will engage in activities with participants at the Developmental Skills Laboratory and Project PEER; receive training from Arts Access on leading museum tours for children with disabilities at a USU art museum; meet and share a meal with Aggie Advocates; attend a USU basketball game; visit the Interdisciplinary Disability Awareness and Service Learning class; and spend a couple of days with Common Ground participants at Beaver Mountain.

    Always glad to host a group of students who go out of their way (in this case 23 hours in a van far away) to make a difference in the lives of others. Looking forward to it.

    I am always impressed with the students that come here for Spring Break.
