TTU Habitat Sponsoring 'Shack-a-thon'

Tennessee Tech University's chapter of Habitat for Humanity is sponsoring a special campus event on Friday, April 1, called Shack-a-Thon. Groups and organizations are encouraged to participate in five-six person teams by building and decorating a "shack" on the Main Quad beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday. Games, food, door prizes, and teamwork will all be part of the festivities. TTU faculty members will serve as judges between 10-11 p.m. on Friday night; participants will stay overnight in their shacks and final prizes will be awarded at 9 a.m. Saturday morning. The $25 group fee goes directly toward the campus chapter goal to fully fund a TTU collegiate build for Habitat.
