Register for the 2017 Mississippi Delta Alternative Spring Break

Are you looking for something exciting to do during spring break???

During Spring Break, 30 MSU students will travel to the Mississippi Delta to live history, see the future, and make a difference in the lives of others. Students will embrace the rich history and culture of the Mississippi Delta during Blues, Civil Rights, and Native-American history experiences.

Students will feel the contrasting power and peace of the Mighty Mississippi while paddling in 30-ft handmade canoes with Quapaw Canoe Company. Participants will explore the Delta’s complementing and conflicting facets of natural resource management, modern agribusiness, local fresh-food initiatives, and high-tech manufacturing.  Most importantly, throughout the entire week, students will be making a positive difference in the lives of others by completing a range of service-learning projects with youth development programs, Mississippi River conservation groups, locally grown food initiatives, and health education organizations.

Requires $250 additional fee for Alternative Spring Break. Cost covers food, travel, and lodging.  Visit http://www.deltaab.msstate.edu/ or contact Alexis Hampton at 662-325-1800 or ahampton@saffairs.msstate.edu for more information.
