As part of a University Studies course, 21 students and 3 faculty members traveled to New Orleans during the first week of March 2007 - to witness the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, to help with the recovery effort, and to enjoy the wonderful city of New Orleans. Working through ACORN, the students gutted 4 houses during their week in New Orleans.
Hurricane relief Initiative
A special WSU Foundation account has been established to support this and future worktrips to the affected regions of the Gulf Coast, as well as other service-learning activities related to hurricane relief. Your donations to this account will help support student travel, buy construction and other relief supplies, as well as coordinate our efforts for maximum effect.
