A group of students will go to Colorado Springs during Spring Break for a code programming mission trip.
The students on the trip will participate in the eighth Spring Break Code-a-Thon, where they will use their programming skills to serve charitable organizations.
Jessica Lannin, academic advisor and volunteer team leader for the trip, said ACU Missions was primarily looking for information technology, digital entertainment technology and computer science majors to go on the trip.
Lannin said despite it being short notice, a handful of students still signed up and committed to the mission trip. The cost is $250.
“I want students to step out of their comfort zone and be brave enough to go see other parts of the world,” Lannin said. “Even if they do not get anything out of the trip that they are serving on, learning more about culture and the world around them is life-changing and will transform you as a person.”
“I hope these students go on the trip and meet other people and learn about themselves, but most importantly, they do so for a greater cause,” Lannin said.
