In March 2016, nine students and staff traveled to Nashville for spring break. Instead of hitting the honky-tonks near Music Row, they spent most of their time volunteering at worksites and reflecting on the Franciscan value of caring for creation.




The students blogged about their experiences in real-time throughout the week for parents, friends and the University community to read.
