UHV students repair homes during Alternative Spring Break

University of Houston-Victoria students take a group selfie outside a house in Louisiana during Alternative Spring Break. Eleven UHV students participated in clean-up efforts in New Orleans and Baton Rouge from March 12 to Friday. The students repaired the roof of a house that was struck by a tornado. They also made repairs to homes damaged in the August flooding. In the evening, students had the chance to sightsee in the New Orleans French Quarter and shop at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. This was the third year UHV offered an Alternative Spring Break trip.
