Alternative Spring Break
Each year, Molloy faculty and students are given the opportunity to go beyond the news stories and learn first-hand about the devastation caused by the breaching of New Orleans' levee system. Our work involves the re-building of homes destroyed by this event. Over the years, our partners have included Habitat for Humanity, Lowernine.org and Hands on New Orleans.
During our time in this magical city, we have many unforgettable experiences which include tours through the French Quarter and Flower Districts, and listening to some of the best blues and jazz music in the world.
"The experience was one which has truly changed my perception on life and one which I will hold dear to my heart forever. I left feeling empowered; knowing I have the power to affect change even if only by pulling out cork from under shingles on the side of Shelby's home. New Orleans was a thought provoking, truly valuable experience which has made me grateful for the privileged life I live and understanding of the fact that all happiness and stability is not guaranteed; it changed the way I plan to live my life." - Meggan Kent, Nursing 2012
