SERVICE LEARNING: NEW ORLEANS
“Eight Tusculum College students had the opportunity recently to not only see first-hand the progress of the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans but also to work in restoration efforts in one of the areas still devastated by the effects of Hurricane Katrina.
The students were part of a Service-Learning Immersion Class and worked with the Common Ground relief organization, which primarily provides assistance toward recovery in the Lower Ninth Ward. This was the fifth trip to New Orleans by a Tusculum class to help in hurricane recovery efforts to be led by Robin Fife, assistant professor of social science. After returning from their trip, the students gave a presentation for the campus about their experiences.” To read the rest of the article click HERE or on the photo.
