Hey future Badgers !

The new year is here, which means new classes, new assignments and new readings. Fortunately Brock offers a reading week in both Fall and Winter ! That’s right Badgers, you get a full week off classes in both terms ! While this break gives students a chance to catch up on readings and assignments, it also allows us to spend some much needed time with our loved ones.

As many students like to take this time to relax at home, Brock sees this as an amazing opportunity for its students to get involved in a community in need! Badgers can opt to spend their reading week travelling and helping to build homes with habitat for humanity. Brock’s Alternative Reading Week will be taking place this year in South Carolina, Peru and the Niagara Region as a local option! These trips allow students to work with Habitat for Humanity to build stronger communities through hands-on projects. The South Carolina trip will focus on building a house; Badgers going to Peru will be teaching English to students of all ages and will run a local camp; and various community tasks are planned for the Niagara Region .

Peace out Badgers!
