Students once again took to the great outdoors to call attention to the problem of homelessness.

Bearing the brunt of a long, cold week, sleeping in tents and eating from a mock soup kitchen, the students learned firsthand how difficult life on the streets can be. While living outside, they still attended classes and did their homework, only without the aid of electronics. Meanwhile, each day brought a speaker to address issues affecting the homeless.
