In April, 35 students participated in the second annual “Alternative Spring Break” trip to Louisiana. The group traveled to Calcasieu Parish, where most of their time was spent working in Cameron—the community hardest hit by Hurricane Rita in 2005.

Accompanying the students to Louisiana were Jeane Relleve Caveness, Student Services; Patricia Rozee, Center for Community Engagement; and Brett Waterfield, Student Life and Development.
