St. Lawrence student groups ventured to a variety of locations for spring break, to
perform and perform service in communities.
Members of the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity, shown above, again
spent spring break building homes, this time in Tacoma, Washington. Chapters from
around the nation converged on the community, in order to finish a large-scale project.
In this case, it was a 12-home development.
The Laurentian Singers, shown in this photo with director Barry Torres, gave a series of performances in New Orleans and in Jackson and Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The concerts consisted
of American music, including popular tunes and songs associated with the civil
rights movement. The Singers also gave workshops in schools during their tour.
Another group of students, shown in the above photo with students
from Clarkson University, ventured to Philadelphia, taking part in the H.E.A.R.T.S. program affiliated with the St. Vincent de Paul Center in the Germantown section of the
city. They provided service in a number of locations throughout the week.
