Students make spring break service trip

One alternative spring break option for University of Iowa students: a service learning experience with elementary school children in Chicago. The students spent March 13–17 in the Windy City, working with small groups of youth at two schools. The UI students helped the Chicago youth with reading and writing projects, and taught them about life as a UI student. During the evenings, the UI students explored a variety of cultural activities.
