St. Lawrence News


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.
