On Sunday, March 4, 2012, 14 Maryville University students will embark on a 740-mile journey to kick off another year of the university’s annual alternative spring break trip to Pensacola, Florida. These students have volunteered their week to work in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity ( to construct a home.¬†Students will be starting with a slab of concrete and working up; hopefully completing the skeleton of the house in¬†four days.

We invite you to follow our blog, as we will be documenting our experiences throughout the duration of the trip. Thank you in advance for your support of these students as they give up their break to give back to those in need.
