Spend your break diving into Tacoma!

Spend your break diving into Tacoma!

When glancing around campus at Hydroflasks and laptops that are plastered with stickers, you're bound to see the "heart 253," but what do you know about the City of Destiny?

Alternative Fall Break 2018

This year's Alternative Fall Break theme is "The City of Destiny," but for Whom?:  Tracing Histories of Exclusion.

This year's Alternative Fall Break is concerned with Tacoma's history of inclusion and exclusion.  You may have encountered the motto "Tacoma, the City of Destiny" while reading through Admissions materials, highlighting the great place that Tacoma is to live.  This break will engage this further, asking 'the city of destiny for whom?"  We will trace the heavy histories of exclusion in the 253 and the ways they still impact the city, while also enjoying some of the unique experiences (food, activities, etc.) that Tacoma offers.

The Fall Break program will take place Saturday, October 13 - Tuesday, October 16.
