SIX years after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the devastation is still apparent. As if one disaster was not enough, in 2010 the BP Gulf Oil Spill hit the area as well, causing further environmental distress on an area that was in the midst of rebuilding. However, despite the many challenges New Orleans is facing, the spirit of the people has not left. Join our students as they work with Habitat for Humanity and other community based organization to assist in the rebuilding effort of New Orleans. Along the way, students will be indulging in the cuisine, music, people, and culture of the area that has weathered the tremendous storm and environmental atrocities.
