IWU Students Take Advantage of BreakWednesday, March 07, 2012
Even as students disperse from Indiana Wesleyan University's residential campus for spring break, the life of the university continues across America and beyond:
- IWU Wildcats men's and women's basketball are both headed to their respective national tournaments for the NAIA Division II, in Branson, Missouri and Sioux City, Iowa, respectively. (They play their first game Wednesday afternoon. See the men's and women's tournament brackets and follow their progress on wildcatcentral.tv.)
- Twenty-four students have made the 16-hour trip to New York City to spend their spring break in ministry in Harlem. IWU senior Patrick Fischl is blogging the journey.
- A team of 10 athletic training majors serving at Hephzibah Children's Home in Macon, GA. Athletic Training staff members Nate Foster and Jessica Keller are leading the team.
