Fifty-one Purdue students arrive at a church in Metairie, La., on Saturday (March 10) to participate in Ultimate Spring Break Challenge 2007. The University Residences event puts students to work rebuilding houses in New Orleans' Ninth Ward, an area flooded by hurricane Katrina. Team leader Rail Shafigulin (standing), a resident assistant at Hawkins Hall who participated in a similar event last year, briefs students in his group about what to expect during the week.
