The Spring 2013 Habitat team embarked on an adventure completely different from their previous trips. This year was fraught with challenges from the beginning, when the team learned that they would not be able to build in Columbus, GA as they have in past years and would have to find somewhere new. After months of planning, the officers found a place for the team in Albany, GA. Habitat for Humanity International graciously opened up some of their housing in Americus, GA. The team worked in Albany for four days alongside other groups from Juniata College and Ashland University. The three schools formed bonds as they worked on two handicap-accessible homes. The WAC team traveled back to Columbus on Thursday night to work with Columbus Area Habitat for a day, finishing homes that they had worked on during the Spring 2012 trip. Before returning home, the group was finally able to attend their first dedication ceremony for the home of Albert and Patricia Hartman, whose home the team worked on in Spring 2012.
Playfair took place in the JFC due to the impending storm outside, and those participating included first-year and international students who remained on campus, while others returned home in preparation for Hurricane Irene.
The third annual Iron Chef WAC hosted by the Student Events Board pitted the culinary skills of teams of 2-4 students against one another in flavorful competition. The dishes were judged based on presentation, originality, and taste. The winners were The Big Spoons with Taylor Goss, Ben Longwell, Tad Derrick, and Spencer van Cise. The second place team was Beauty and the Beast with Lindsay Haislip and Ryan Musgrave; third place went to Hillary Sica and Paige Harrison; and fourth place went to Chase Camera and Alex Stinton.
