"I think that Habitat for Humanity is a great service," said Ashley Miles from Harrisburg, who was also a USD student leader on this trip. "They are really helping people in need and giving them a chance. It makes me want to volunteer more time to help others."
According to Amber Kummer, a USD student from Mitchell, the students also enjoyed the collaboration between the two campuses.
The joint trip was planned as part of the service-learning mentor relationship that USD has with DWU. This relationship is facilitated by the Midwest Consortium for Service-Learning in Higher Education, an organization that promotes service-learning on campuses in South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa.
