Students use winter break to help others

January 24, 2013
While many students were using their Christmas break to catch up on sleep, a group of university students traveled to Oakridge, Tenn., to help people in need.

Graham said that it is not typical for their group to do multiple projects in different specialties, which differs from their work in the Akron area, according to Graham. Here, she said they usually work on one house, and each person works on what they have learned to do.
