Chris: Pace of Spanish Community Service Learning Before Spring Break
Things are still really busy at the Refugee Center. A lot of people are still coming with questions about taxes and insurance. I have mostly been taking phone messages and filing documents. I have had the chance to talk to some of the immigrants about their plans for this spring, and almost all of them are staying in Champaign. Some people have family visiting, but I do not think that any of them are really taking a vacation. Nevertheless, it seems that both the employees and the immigrants at the Refugee Center are enjoying the warm weather. Sixty degrees and snowless weather is enough to keep everyone’s spirits high, including my own, despite not having a spring vacation.
