UNIV 2100 Takes on Texas

Hannah Sexton, Staff Reporter

On January 6, 2020, students in the UNIV 2100 class will travel to Corpus Christi, Texas to participate in volunteering with the homeless community and analyze how the geographical aspects of the area affect the community as a whole. The course is led by Gabriel Brown; an adjunct sociology professor on campus, First Gen mentor and the Upward Bound Math Science director.

In the past, Brown has taken students to study and volunteer at Myrtle Beach. But for 2020, he wanted to change his direction. Brown stated he wanted to give students a chance to experience different areas. Even though there are immense amounts of work to complete in Myrtle Beach, opportunities exist everywhere. In Texas, students will stay in a condo on the beach for the week and will be allowed to experience the area as they wish while volunteering with museums, shelters, and other historical buildings. Students are also given the opportunity to fly to Corpus Christi.
