Story by Shawny Anderson
As we watch the devastation of Hurricane Katrina continue to unfold, we often wish that there were a way to make a physical commitment to the restoration of New Orleans. For 25 SMC students registered for the Jan Term course “Bridges to the Bayou: Direct Hurricane Relief in New Orleans,” that wish is coming true. The group will join me to provide manual labor in support of rebuilding efforts while we simultaneously pursue a course in creative ethnography.
Because of our need to be a fully self-contained unit, the cost per student is approximately $1,500.
