Before even taking their first official class as Niagara University freshmen, sixteen students are helping to fulfill the institution’s Catholic and Vincentian mission.

The students, who are participating in the Niagara University Opportunity Program, spent most of July 18 working with the Niagara Area Habitat for Humanity to rehabilitate a house on 37th Street in Niagara Falls, N.Y.
