Spring Break Y-Trips

An opportunity for service and mission with your peers.

Spring Break Y-Trips facilitate building friendships while serving others in various locations across the East Coast and in southern locations. The cost for students is $150 ($90 for the New River Gorge trip). Sign up with campus ministries in the student life office suite in University Commons. Payment in full secures your place on a trip. Some scholarships are available. Here’s the T-shirt design for this year.
