Students Join First Res Life Alternative Spring Break Trip

group pic1.JPGOver Spring Break six students participated in the first annual Residence Life-sponsored Alternative Spring Break trip. Instead of basking in the warm Florida sun or going snow skiing in Colorado, they traveled to Statesville, N.C. to help Habitat for Humanity build a three bedroom, two bath home for a deserving family. The new homeowner will move in with her daughter and use the home to provide foster care. Among the Belmont students on the trip were Annalise Emerick, Britney Monroe, Brittany Hodges, Lindsay Barnes, Nicole Pearce and Wes Burkhart, who all spent the week swinging hammers, installing drywall, attaching exterior siding and adding a wooden deck.
