Alternative Spring Break 2014 in Central Florida!
This year, forty-one Arcadia University students, staff, and alumni traveled to Leesburg, Florida to complete service work with the National Relief Network.
During the week-long trip, volunteers helped improve the curb appeal of homes in a impoverished community. Houses were painted and landscapes were cleaned up in hopes of promoting beautification throughout the neighborhood.

The Corporation for National and Community Service has named Arcadia University to the 2012 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Selection to the honor roll is recognition from the highest levels of the federal government of Arcadia’s commitment to service and civic engagement on the campus and in the world. Arcadia Community Service Receives Presidential Award!
“President Obama has pledged to make service a central cause of his administration and wishes to commemorate the significant role that higher institutions, their students, staff, and faculty play in helping to solve pressing social problems in the nation’s communities,” according to the Honor Roll website.
Each year, beginning with New Student Orientation, Arcadia students, faculty, staff and alumni perform thousands of hours of community service.
Annual projects include:
America Reads Challenge
Empty Bowl Benefit Dinner
Alternative Spring Break Trips
Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
Dr. Seuss Day
Interfaith Hospitality Network
Arcadia also was named to the 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 Honor Roll. The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually recognizes institutions of higher education for their commitment to and achievement in community service. The President’s Honor Roll increases the public’s awareness of the contributions that colleges and their students make to local communities and the nation as a whole.
