St. Lawrence News


About 25 students slept outdoors on the quad on October 3, in an event to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity, as well as awareness about homelessness.

As a result of the event, about $750 was donated to local affiliate Raquette Valley Habitat. Students at other area colleges also participated, on their respective campuses.

Many students slept in tents, though some (like those in the photo above) built shelters out of boxes. The event gave participants an idea of what it is like to be outside without adequate housing, organizers say.
