BreakOut is a student-led, student-organized club that coordinates service trips during weekends, Block Breaks, and Spring Break. Whether you want to get out for a weekend or spend a block break volunteering, BreakOut hosts a variety of trips, from organic farming in New Mexico to working with rescued wolves in Colorado, to playing with puppies at the DAWGS shelter in Texas. Best of all, BreakOut trips are open to everyone on campus!
