Alternative Break Immersions: Immerse Yourself in Something New

Posted on: November 1st, 2012 by Lori Greene

You don’t have to go far to experience something new, meet new people, and gain an awareness of diverse communities and cultures. Alternative Break Immersions (ABIs) are a part of Loyola’s Campus Ministry Faith Programs, where students get the opportunity to connect and engage with each other and those in other communities.

Loyola students began applying for ABIs early this fall. What are you interested in? Is it something local where you can help at a church or focus on urban issues at a community center? How about an alternative spring break trip or a summer immersion that might cross state lines into KY, WV, MI, MD, D.C., SD, or LA?

Perhaps the bigger reach is planning for an ABI at the end of the second semester and traveling to an international location in countries like El Salvador or Guatemala.

No matter what your pursuits and passions, Loyola’s immersion programs offer you an opportunity to experience life from someone else’s point of view. You’ll share your time and talents through service work and cultural immersion while taking back an experience that you’ll remember for a long time.

P.S. Take a look at what the month of November brings to the Loyola campus as Ignatian Heritage Month events are celebrated with all in mind.
