Spring break looked a little different for eleven Sarah Lawrence students this year. Instead of spending the week away, they chose to participate in @slccommunitypartnerships #alternativespringbreak program and spent their time converting a 200-year-old Quaker Meeting house into a two-family home and rehabilitating an African American Church that was flooded during Hurricane Ida in September 2021 with the @fullercenterny. Read more about their work and alternative spring break opportunities at the link in our bio! #sarahlawrencecollege #sarahlawrence #springbreak2023 #community
