While many students spent their spring break free from studying, one group of SDSU students spent their week applying classroom work to real world experiences.

Over spring break, Dr. Thomas Osowski, assistant professor of rural sociology, took seven SDSU students to Mississippi as an extension of his social policy class.

Dr. Osowski gave his social policy students the choice between the spring break trip and a research project looking at federal policy.

Dianne Nagy, the service learning coordinator, said she was the one who came up with the idea for the trip.
