24 SU Students arranged by Volunteer Center GA Samantha Beck travelled to New Orleans to work with mission groups, contributing to the hope rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina.


New Orleans is known for the Mississippi River, also called The Big Muddy.


Upon arriving in New Orleans and attempting to drive in the city, the students came across incredibly construction of gaping holes in the roadways.


Brianne Ognibene (grad student) and Volunteer Center GA Samantha Beck collaboratively tackle house number 1 in the upper 9th ward of New Orleans. The 9th ward was one of the most effected neighborhoods during the flooding in 2005 and is 50 percent rebuilt.
