I know I’m not a CU student anymore but I just wanted to say what a great opportunity this is. Anyone who is thinking about going shoud definitely go! I went on the trip to Nashville and it was amazing!! I live in Charleston, SC now and I think that it’s great that you all are coming here! Charleston is beautiful and I’m sure will benefit from the help!! Awesome choice guys!!

I also went on the Nashville trip and it was totally worth it. Not only for the volunteering… But the memories you make with the people you go with are priceless. If you have no plans for your spring break you should really consider going. You won’t regret a second of it. 🙂

Hope this helps you make up your mind!
