The Alternative Spring Break Program, in conjunction with the National Society for Leadership & Success, the Center for Student Involvement and Eastern Oregon University, strives to provide the opportunities and resources necessary for students to gain a greater perspective on life outside the walls of the classroom. The Alternative Spring Break Program offers students a chance to give back to society in an active manner while allowing students a chance to self-reflect and mold one’s views of the world. By doing so, students will be able to bring back their experiences and further enrich the Eastern Oregon University campus and La Grande community through various manners.
Participants will be involved in an immersion program from March 23, 2012 through March 24, 2012. The program is associated with JOIN in Portland, which exists to support the efforts of homeless people to transition off streets and into permanent housing.
As a result of participating in the EOU Alternative Spring Break Program, students will learn to be active citizens as evidenced by their engagement in the program and their reflections. Students will also develop an appreciation for one’s own culture and an understanding of others through interactions with individuals with different economic statuses, background, etc. In addition, students will be present for a roundtable (as a group) at the 2012 Student Leadership Conference to express their knowledge and experiences gained during the Alternative Spring Break Program. The roundtable will highlight the experiences students had during the trip and illustrate the importance why others need to become involved with service learning projects.
An informational meeting will be held on Monday, January 30 at 5 p.m. in Hoke 201. Applications will be made available at the meeting or can be found at: orgsync.com/28428/files/191466/download

In an effort to continue promoting OrgSync and its benefits to our students, OrgSync has created a short interactive video to help us show students the importance of this social networking tool. Students are the catalyst that makes OrgSync a success on every campus and it's up to us to continue to promote networking and making connections with all students in any capacity.
As students find themselves busy in everyday activities, OrgSync is a great tool for them to engage and become more active in student involvement via the internet. While schedules conflict, students have the opportunity to check in, see what's happening and communicate with others at the touch of a button as well as many other great benefits!
In an effort to increase student involvement and engagement, the Center for Student Involvement encourages you to share this video (vimeo.com/34485479) with your students and peers to help spread the word about OrgSync across the campus of Eastern Oregon University.
For more information about OrgSync, please contact Le Alexander, assistant director for student involvement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-962-3714.
