Honors students spent the week breaking college spring break stereotypes this year. Students in the program were seen all over America during spring break, whether for travel, family, or volunteerism.
I received the opportunity to reconnect with family in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio, where I saw snow for the first time! I explored Nashville and the mountains of Kentucky while learning family history.
During Spring Break, fellow honors students Andrew Holzinger, Megan Hossler, Amela Leenig a long with myself and non honors Andrea Bastidas went to Cheahea State Park in Alabama. Cheaha is the highest point in Alabama and the group camped in the mountains. They enjoyed hiking waterfalls, beautiful trails, campfires, and s’mores, of course. “It was a very awesome alternative to a stereotypical spring break”, said Watkins.
Justin Halteman was able to go to Red Lake Ontario, Canada. While there, he visited his uncle and cousins and he went ice fishing and snowmobiling.
Hannah Mizell went to Nashville with UWF’s Alternative Spring Break program. Eleven UWF Students helped clean kennels at Walden’s Puddle, a wildlife rehabilitation center there, and clear invasive species from the site of one of the Nashville Zoo’s future exhibits. Hannah also visited Nashville and saw what it had to offer in the way of attractions, such as the Parthenon and Opry Mills.
