UIS Students help out on spring break

A record number of UIS students returned after a 20 hour trip from Galveston, Texas Saturday night as part of Alternative Spring Break.

The volunteers spent 5 days helping to cleanup homes damaged by Hurricane Ike, which hit in 2008.

While that might not seem like an ideal way to spend spring break, they say the personal satisfaction of helping others was well worth it.

The trip was featured by WAND-TV during a report on March 21, 2010.
