SUU Students Serve

Many young Alum will remember Alternative Spring Break (ASB). Well, the Service Learning Center has expanded ASB to include a second trip during winter break the Guymas, Mexico. At Alternative Winter Break (AWB), SUU students, faculty and staff have a unique opportunity to travel to and serve the people of Guymas, Mexico. To those that have gone it is a life altering experience. Their service includes: Jerry's Club (a boys and girls after school club), rebuilding of parks and homes, painting through out the community, work in hospitals and the list goes on and on. If it is a need, SUU student try to fill that need.

Class is back in session...

The holidays have ended, classrooms are now full and stories of winter break are floating around campus. Here is what happend around the Alumni office over the holidays.
The Iron county Alumni chapter hosted a holiday hoopla!
Everyone enjoyed the nacho bar and visits with Santa between the women's and men's games.
We enjoyed a second night of fun at the Utah county Alumni chapter's tailgate at the SUU vs. UVU game in Orem.

Both events were a huge success thanks to the hard work of both the Chapter representatives and Linda. Thank you to all that came out, showed your support and enjoyed a fun night with us.
