COURTNEY WESTERMANN, Sarah Morrill, Olivia Pappas, Linzee Duncan and Dena Riccio participated in a service trip during Spring break in Arizona. They were one of several groups of students who went on service trips during Spring break.

A group of students went to St. Michaels, Arizona, during Spring break for a service trip.

The Center for Service and Social Justice held service trips for students to attend during their Spring breaks. The trips were all domestic and varied from east coast to west coast.

The St. Michaels trip went into the Navajo reservation to work at the St. Michaels Association for Special Education.
Sarah Morrill, a junior occupational therapy major, attended the trip to St. Michaels. The whole trip was full of laughter while doing service.

“I really liked the trip a lot; I feel like the people we met left a huge impact on us,” Morrill said.

Since the students volunteered at a school, the work was finished by 3 p.m., so the students explored the Navajo reservation and their culture. The trip to St. Michaels was unlike any other because the culture was so different from that of Scranton.
