Alissa Hauke of Leesburg and Morgan Campbell of Blanchester are participating in Bluffton University cross-cultural experiences during the month of May.
Hauke, along with other Bluffton students, will collaborate with Sharing with Appalachian People (SWAP), a program run by Mennonite Central Committee. Students participating in this program will complete a variety of hands-on projects for the citizens of Eastern Kentucky.
Hauke, the daughter of Andrew and Christi Hauke, is a junior majoring in art and writing. She is a 2014 graduate of Hillsboro High School.
Campbell, along with other Bluffton students, will collaborate with the Olive Branch Mission, located in southside Chicago. Students participating in this program will better understand the social, racial and economic struggles facing low income families in an urban environment and one “Christian” response to these issues.
Campbell, tje daughter of Beth and Wes Blair and Tim Campbell, is a junior majoring in dietetics. She is a 2014 graduate of Whiteoak High School.
These experiences will fulfill Bluffton’s undergraduate cross-cultural requirement that must be completed before graduation. Students can either complete a cross-cultural experience or take six credit hours in one foreign language.
