Alternative Student Breaks

Alternative Student Breaks (ASB) seeks to educate Northwestern University students about specific social issues by immersing them in service-learning activities in a wide array of communities across the country. ASB trips vary widely in price from $180 to $500. This cost covers all the trip expenses including transportation, lodging, food, and an ASB shirt.
