As the first week of winter quarter got underway at the University of Cincinnati, dozens of UC students were reflecting on a winter break that involved more than the valued traditions of visiting family and hometown friends, enjoying a good home-cooked meal, sleeping in and opening gifts. They also dove into the giving spirit of the season through service experiences with no comforts of home – travels that some of the students are calling the opportunity of a lifetime.

Students with UC’s Serve Beyond Cincinnati organization traveled to South Carolina, Louisiana, Peru and El Salvador – with all of them intent on service that would get them energized for their next academic quarter. Approximately 60 students took part in Serve Beyond Cincinnati’s winter break events. Each individual trip was represented by 11-to-15 UC students.

Serve Beyond Cincinnati is an organization created in 2007 by UC students who envisioned fueling the passion of a civic-minded generation by providing national and international service experiences for UC students. Costs of the trips are supported through student fundraising.
