On September 10th, the CUA Law Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter participated in its first build of the new school year. CUA Law students: Katherine Almen (2L), Robbie Cain (2L), Kelsie Rutherford (2L), Madison Peticca (2L), Casey Hughes (2L), Ahad Khilji (1L), and Arun Arokiaswamy (1L), were joined by CUA Law's Registar/Assistant Dean for Academic Services Stuart Schept and his wife, Susan Schept. The group arrived to the build site around 8:15 a.m. and finished their day around 3:30 p.m. The group was joined by Georgetown Law Center’s Habitat for Humanity Chapter and both groups worked together on various projects, which included sheathing the exterior of the complex, framing the structure, installing door frames, and reinforcing the floors and ceilings.

When asked about the project, Casey Hughes said, “It was awesome to spend the day working alongside fellow law school students. Habitat provides us with the opportunity to take a break from school work and really give back to the local community in a meaningful and tangible way.”
