Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break (ASB)

Shepherd University Alternative Break Programs

Are you tired of boring spring breaks? Want to make a difference in the community? Looking for new friends? Does spending a week helping others sound interesting?

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a service-focused week of activities and events that occur during Shepherd University’s Spring Break. Shepherd offers two different types of ASB — a fully immersive trip for students who can travel out of state for the entire break and a Local ASB for students who need to stay close to the Eastern Panhandle.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the out of town experience.  Consider applying for the Local Alternative Spring Break (LASB) experience  on RamPulse, but check back each semester to take advantage of these opportunities.

Senior, ASB Team member Kahlen Browning’s thoughts on the 2017 ASB Trip.

“I learned more about myself this week that I will ever be able to put into writing.  I have a greater pride in my state now, and an even greater pride of our Shepherd community.  This day alone is the reason ASB trips need to happen every year!”
