Anna Maria College announces that 18 students will be traveling outside of Central Massachusetts this year to participate in the College's annual Alternative Spring Break Program.  Under the direction of the College’s Campus Ministry, 18 students will be spending time in the Cherokee Nation in Northeast Oklahoma made possible through an organization founded by the Sisters of Saint Anne called: Vacations that Give.  While the students are in Oklahoma, they will be providing services on the Cherokee Nation reservation, working at an orphanage and a soup kitchen, and performing home repair projects.

One of the hallmarks of Anna Maria College is its commitment to the traditions of Catholic Social Teaching and the mission of its Foundresses, the Sisters of Saint Anne. Over the course of the College’s history, hundreds of students, faculty, staff and alumni have offered their time, energy and talents as servant leaders helping to provide for the Common Good.

For the past three years, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has honored Anna Maria College as a leader among institutions of higher education for its support of volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement.  CNCS congratulated AMC and its students for their dedication to service and commitment to improving their local communities by admitting the College to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
