ACU Spring Break Campaign sign ups exceed expectations


For immediate release
Nov. 9, 2001

Sign ups have begun for Spring Break Campaigns at Abilene Christian University. This year the Spring Break Campaign committee expects a total of 35 campaigns with student involvement exceeding 600 by March. Last year, 31 campaigns were led with 575 students participating.

Already, there are 520 students committed to participating in a total of 29 campaigns. Jeremy Smith, junior psychology major from St. Louis, Mo., and co-chair of the Spring Break Campaign committee, said that most of the campaigns have a waiting list of 10 people. "Because of the massive waiting lists, " Smith said, "next Thursday we are adding four to six more campaigns to try and help accommodate all of the people wanting to go on a campaign, but stuck on a waiting list."

The added campaign destinations include Germany, which will allow ACU students studying abroad in Oxford, England, to participate as well.

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