FYC Immersion Spring Break, March 1-8, 2013

FYC Immersion Spring Break, March 1-8, 2013

March 1st-8th, 2013

Don't have any plans for Spring Break? Interested in doing service work, hanging out with 9 other FYC students and 2 awesome advisors, and exploring the state of North Carolina? We have just the opportunity for you!

The First Year College’s Immersion Spring Break trip is a 8 day trip across the state of North Carolina. Together with approximately 10 First Year College students and 2 academic advisors, students will explore the North Carolina culture, diversity, and geography. This week will expose our students not only to the various geographic regions of the state, but also various populations that make up North Carolina's history and present community including people of color, veterans, women, underprivileged, and working-class. Our week-long journey will provide our students the opportunity to explore North Carolina, engage in issues facing the diverse North Carolina populations, and excel in service learning. 

Opportunities to bond both within the van, as well as on the day-trips, will be interspersed with group and written reflection each day to make this experience a truly experiential learning trip. The advisors value the small group experience this trip will provide students. Students will not only establish community with one another and engage in service learning, but also have a ton of fun!

The entire experience will cost students only $100 and a positive attitude! The $100 for the week includes food, lodging, transportation, admission to locations, and unlimited fun!

Locations: Durham, Cherokee, Linville, Greensboro, Crystal Coast, Jacksonville, and Raleigh
