Eleven St. Norbert College students will visit Milwaukee, Wis., from March 15 to March 20, to learn about urban education as part of the college's TRIPS alternative break service program. While there, they will work side by side with St. Norbert College alumni teachers in hands-on classroom experiences, while learning about the school choice system in Milwaukee. The spring program will continue St. Norbert College's connection with St. Anthony School in Milwaukee, which previously hosted a group of twelve St. Norbert students in December 2014 as part of the TRIPS program.

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.
