Habitat, Feel Good, Take Back the Tap, and WPTS will be
hosting our first annual Shanty Town- an event where teams
will compete to build cardboard shacks to simulate the
substandard housing that millions of people are living in
around the globe.
This FREE event will be
held Saturday, April 6th from 6pm-1am on
the Cathedral Lawn.
Delicious food will be catered by Chakh la
India, Spice Island Tea House, and Abay Ethiopian Cuisine!
We will be having a night of games, a scavenger hunt, music
and live performances, and a guest speaker from Habitat
International. Prizes will be awarded for the best shanties
in a number of categories (Most Aesthetic, Most Structurally
Sound, Most Creative, etc).
Sign up for this un and
exciting event at
your campus organization in groups of 5-8,
or sign up individually and we will put you
on a team! Clubs and organizations are
strongly encouraged to decorate your
