ACU students begin signing up for Spring Break Campaigns


For immediate release
Oct. 24, 2001

Abilene Christian University students are making plans now to take part in the annual Spring Break Campaigns.

Spring Break Campaigns are student-led mission efforts to various places in the U.S. and nationally. The campaigns involve community improvement efforts, service projects and work with local churches.

Because of the popularity of the campaigns and lack of allotted space, the Spring Break campaign committee initiated a lottery sign-up method to alleviate long waiting lines. The tickets assign times when students can come to sign up for the campaigns, rather than having hundreds of student line up at the same time for the first-come, first-served sign-ups.

Currently, 27 campaigns are planned, with seven of those being international destinations. Overall, the committee hopes to end up with 32 campaigns and more than 600 student participants.

Jeremy Smith, junior psychology major from St. Louis, Mo., and co-chair of the SBC committee, said the campaigns give students opportunities to take the information learned in Bible classes and apply it to real-world situations.

"This is how we can change the world," Smith said.
