At Your Service
Senior engineering major Justin Boucher (right) didn't spend Spring Break 2010 toting beach chairs and downing frosty beverages. Instead, he joined a group of classmates on an Alternative Spring Break trip to Nicaragua, where he transformed cinderblocks, bags of mortar and wheelbarrows of dirt into sinks, showers and washing stations for needy local residents.
From educating Tlingit schoolchildren in Alaska to exploring health-care issues in the Dominican Republic, NC State students are continuing the university's legacy of Spring Break service on a national and international level. See how our students are changing the world this week - one day at a time.
