Collegiate Challenge


Collegiate Challenge is a week long event that occurs over our Spring Break. About 20 students will travel to another Habitat affiliate where they will spend the week working with them. You do not need to have any previous construction experience! This academic year, we are going to be in Franklin, WV working with Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity.

Fundraising activities are available for the event, and it will cost approximately $300-$400 for the entire week, depending mostly on transportation costs. Past locations include North Carolina, South Carolina, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, and Louisiana. Last academic year's Collegiate Challenge was spent at Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Applications for this academic year's Collegiate Challenge trip are closed.

Please email the Travel Coordinator, Teri LaForest, at if you have any questions or would like more information.
