As students in Minnesota, our daily schedules were apparently unaltered by Hurricane Katrina, so we looked for ways in which we could offer support to those in the Gulf Coast region. The first opportunity for students to contribute directly came during spring break, 2006, when about 20 students from Cameron Sinclair's Architecture for Humanity course travelled to Biloxi, Mississippi, to lend a hand for the week.
