Gettin' ready to Break Out of the Burgh

Friday, February 26, 2010 4:00 PM by Point Park Student Activities

This is Point Park University’s second straight year working with Habitat for Humanity in the Gulf Coast region and it’s first with the Collegiate Challenge. The Office of Student Activities became involved when the previous director attended a conference in New Orleans and witnessed the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. She took it upon herself to organize the first University sponsored alternative spring break trip to assist the families that had been affected by this natural disaster. Upon the group's return, the students reported about how much work still needed to be done and strongly suggested that Point Park University continue to send volunteers to this area. This year we doubled the amount of applicants and have a diverse group of talented students attending. We hope that we will be able to help where needed and are excited for the opportunity. Point Park University is committed to sending students to this region of the country for years to come.

Please follow our group as a different member's experience will be highlighted daily. We look forward to reading your comments as well.
