What are Alternative Thanksgiving Break?

An Alternative Thanksgiving Break has the same structure as one of our Alternative Spring Break. This experience happens in the fall during the university's Thanksgiving break. It is a relatively new alternative break experience for JMU (the University instituted week-long Thanksgiving breaks in 2008). Due to the recent implementation and the lack of sufficient time to raise funds, they are currently limited to domestic driving breaks.

Check out the breaks we offer for the 2015-2016 academic year!


Current estimates for the breaks are $250-300 for the week which includes all of your food, housing and transportation. Cost may go down as final budgets are approved for each break.
