Ten St. Norbert College students will visit Little Rock, Ark., from March 14 to March 21, to work on an affordable housing project as part of the college's TRIPS alternative break service program. The trip participants will spend a week painting, building, roofing and restoring homes, working with Habitat for Humanity. They will also help with projects in the ReStore, a nonprofit home improvement store and donation center that sells new and gently used furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances to the public at a fraction of their retail price.

TRIPS (an acronym for Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service) is an alternative break program organized by the Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning at St. Norbert College. It is designed to give students the opportunity to put their beliefs into action through service and solidarity with various communities. TRIPS challenges students to participate in a week or more of service in areas throughout the United States and the world.
