Beyond Bama: Alternative Breaks organizes trips for the UA student body during Fall, Winter, and Spring breaks. Alternative Break trips allow students to travel to communities in parts of the country and the world, and engage in service and experimental learning during university holiday breaks. These short-term service trips provide an all-inclusive experience for students while providing a learning experience on issues such as literacy, poverty, culture, hunger, homelessness, and the environment. These trips are fundamentally life-changing for the students and those served.
