Purdue University Residences' Ultimate Spring Break Challenge participants arrive in downtown New Orleans on Sunday (March 11) where they watched an IMAX movie depicting the impact of Hurricane Katrina and toured the French Quarter. On Saturday (March 12), the students toured flood-damaged areas near where the levee broke in 2005. Posing here in front of the Mississippi River are members of the Black & Gold Fish group: (Back row from left) Cliff Williams, Hawkins Hall facilities manager; Yun Jin Koh, a freshman from Seoul; Daniel Burch, a freshman from Fishers, Ind.; Jennifer Hummer, a freshman from Mishawaka, Ind.; and Adam Dodge, a senior from Fort Wayne, Ind.
