Alternative Weekends -
"Give meaning to your weekend!"
Alternative Weekend experiences are designed to give UVM students
the opportunity to volunteer throughout Vermont and beyond, to
escape from campus for a weekend, to build friendships
and to learn about issues outside of campus life.
Groups will meet together before leaving for the weekend
to review gear needed and inform participants about details
of the trip. These trips are completely substance
free; no alcohol or illegal drugs are permitted, even by those
of legal age. Support from the Department of Student
Life and the UVM Bookstore help to fund these trips, although a
cost to participants is also required.
