Learn how you can use your media skills to help others at an information session about The Media School’s alternative spring break service trips.

The information session is at 7 p.m. Sept. 19 in Franklin Hall 312. Katie Beck, associate director of student services, experiential education, will introduce the opportunities available; explain the application process, costs and logistics; and answer questions.

The Media School is offering two alternative spring break service trips this year:

  • Senior Yulin Yu takes photographs on the beach.

    The Rich Coast Project, Costa Rica: Participate in an audio storytelling/documentary photography project to document the stories of the people of Caribe Sur.
  • Gulf Islands National Seashore, Florida: Create promotional videos as a volunteer for the National Park Service.

Alternative spring break service trips are non-credit opportunities that are not part of a Media School course. The Media School also offers field experience courses with travel components.
