DUDLEY — What happens when a heard of Bison join forces over spring break?

You have a group of Nichols College students who plan to give back to the victims of Hurricane Katrina during a time when most college kids are planning trips to sunny destinations or going back home to spend time with friends and family.

The group of seven undergraduates is looking to raise more than $2,000 before spring break this April. According to Nichols College Center for Student Involvement Assistant Director Beth Gionfriddo all of the money raised will be set aside to cover the cost of traveling and staying in New Orleans. She said if residents would like to donate they can log onto http://alumnichoose.org/hbab, and search Nichols College to find their fundraising page.
