No location has been entered for this event.

During Spring Break, 30 MSU students will travel to the Mississippi Delta to live history, see the future, and make a difference in the lives of others. They will begin their week with Sunday worship experiences in traditionally white and black churches. In the days that follow, the students will further embrace the rich history and culture of the Mississippi Delta during Blues, Civil Rights, and Native-American history experiences.

Students will feel the contrasting power and peace of the Mighty Mississippi while paddling in 30-ft handmade canoes with Quapaw Canoe Company. Participants will explore the Delta’s complementing and conflicting facets of natural resource management, modern agribusiness, local fresh-food initiatives, and high-tech manufacturing.  Most importantly, throughout the entire week, students will be making a positive difference in the lives of others by completing a range of service-learning projects with youth development programs, Mississippi River conservation groups, locally grown food initiatives, and health education organizations.
