Students to build affordable housing during Alternative Spring Break

Posted on Mar 12, 2012
Alternative Spring Break is an opportunity for students to help others.

Nine University of Wisconsin-Superior students will travel to Montana later this month to help build affordable housing during the university's annual Alternative Spring Break trip.

During the week of March 17-26 the students will spend their spring break working alongside other volunteers to build simple, decent and affordable houses as part of the Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge. The students chose to work in Kalispell, a popular resort city where high-priced housing is beyond the reach of many local residents.

Alternative Spring Break is a popular learning and service experience at UW-Superior. It offers civic-minded students an opportunity to do something useful with their spring break while seeing another part of the country.

Students participating are:

  • Brittney Kemi, Elementary Education major from Cloquet, Minn.
  • Cory Mareno, Criminal Justice major from Superior
  • Sarah Esher,  Elementary Education major from Osceola, Wis.
  • Emily Johnson, Elementary Education from Duluth
  • Ben Mooney, History major from Spooner, Wis.
  • Jasmyn Marten , Elementary Education major from Rhinelander, Wis.
  • Ryan Guthrie, Undecided major from Duluth
  • Tony Willette, Elementary Education major from Wells, Minn.
  • Cody Chaffee, Criminal Justice major from Springfield, Ohio

UW-Superior engages students for lifelong learning and rewarding careers through more than 26 undergraduate and graduate programs offered on campus along with degrees offered through distance learning. The university is a member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges and plays a central role in the University of Wisconsin System's Growth Agenda for Wisconsin.
