Slippery Rock Students Head South for Spring Break

Many schools across the country are getting out for Spring Break and college students are heading south. Most head to places like Panama City, but students from one Pennsylvania school headed to south Mississippi to help out.

Students from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania have been spending their Spring Break in Biloxi helping out wherever they can. Tuesday, they were picking up litter along Ceder Lake Road, and Monday, made the trip out to Ceder Lake Island, helping to keep Mississippi beautiful. The students will be on the Coast until this Friday and have a great reason why they’ve chosen community service over partying.

Megan McKay, a student at Slippery Rock University, says, "This is like a Spring Break we’ll never forget, as opposed to one we’ll never remember, so it’s just great for us to give back and get to know new people and visit new places."

It’s not all work and no play for the students though. They’re enjoying this week away from freezing temperatures and feet of snow back home.
