Students Give Time Over Winter Break

Ship students finished the roof of an infirmary in Haiti

By: Paige Arensmeyer


SHIPPENSBURG -Winter break wasn’t all about rest and relaxation for all SU students. The French Department hosted the annual study-abroad trip to Gros Mangles, Haiti.

Dr.Agnes Ragone and Dr.Blandine Mitaut travled with four students for two weeks, to finish the roof of an infirmary started in 2014. All the while, the students learned about the culture and documented their experiences.

After the final touches were made to the roof, the Shippensburg group joined the community in a traditional benediction and raising of the Haitian flag, to celebrate the building reaching its highest point.

The French Depart raises money for the trip all year round. To help the cause and to learn more click here.
