Visitors get head start on student service work

Prospective students visiting the UIndy campus last weekend got a taste of what the university’s “Education for Service” motto is all about.

In what has become a tradition at the annual Campus Camp-In, organized by the Office of Admissions, the touring teens built, painted and sold three wooden playhouses to raise money for tornado relief in southern Indiana.

Constructed with guidance from Theatre department chairman Jim Ream, the structures are the type suitable for backyard play.

Each of the three sold for $250, with proceeds donated to the American Red Cross.
