Support BreakAway

Main page content


UWT students will be traveling to Eugene, Oregon to partner with Friends of Buford Park and Mount Pisgah. We will not only be working to support environmental restoration, but also be bringing unique backgrounds together to engage in meaningful personal and professional growth.

Thank you for helping make this trip possible!

Breakaway is a chance to be apart of a team outside of school working towards improving our fragile ecosystems at Buford Park & Mount Pisgah in Eugene, Oregon. I am ecstatic about this Breakaway trip because as a returning student I want to take full advantage of of the opportunities available to me at UWT. This one in particular captured my attention because of the direct improvements we will be partaking in which relates to my goal of graduating with a degree in Environmental Sustainability. I am looking forward to building close relationships with other students who will be going on this trip with me, as we may be able to connect with each other throughout our academic careers and into the future.  Thank you for your support!
