Alternative Reading Week – Explore the World with Brock!

Hey Badgers!

It’s come to that time of year again, the week that students look forward to in second semester to take a week off from school and do what they please!

This year, Brock’s winter term reading week takes place from Monday, February 20th to Friday, February 24th.  There are SO many exciting things to look forward to on reading week that students can take part in.

Students use these reading weeks just like a March break, whether it be hanging out at home with friends and family, taking time to relax or catch up on studies, to read leisure books or take part in camps or activities.  However, reading week at Brock can be all that and MORE!

Every year, Brock Cares offers alternative reading weeks; opportunities for students to travel the world with Brock and make a difference in other people’s lives and their own as they explore rich cultures, diversity and landscapes.

This year, students had the opportunity to sign up for one of two February alternative reading week trips.  One trip is to South Carolina, where students have the opportunity to help build and construct houses with Habitat for Humanity.  The second trip takes place in Peru, where students will be teaching English, running camps and activities, but also getting the opportunity to see the beautiful landmarks of the city they are visiting.  Other reading week trips have travelled to Disney in Orlando Florida, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, and many other places.  Brock is always trying to seek new opportunities to expand where we can reach out and explore in the world!

This is just another exciting opportunity for you to look forward to when you join our Brock family!  Check out the following link to get a better look into what these alternative reading week trips are all about: https://experiencebu.brocku.ca/organization/studentlife/calendar/details/51617
