FAMU Students Assist Post-Katrina Recovery During Holidays

More than 100 Florida A&M University students visited New Orleans, La., for three days and two nights during the holiday season helping families affected by Hurricane Katrina.

“It honestly was extremely heart breaking to see that six years later, New Orleans looks as if Katrina was just yesterday,” said Jasmine Louis, a junior English education student from Orlando, Fla. “I immediately wanted to cry for all the families put out of their homes. It’s sad to see that people are still struggling.”
