Students choose service over spring break sun

Spring break for students often involves sun and fun. However, UI student Kate Tomka and others chose to head to Cedar Rapids for an alternative spring break project: tearing out homes that sustained significant damage from the flood of 2008. Tomka describes the joy of doing something selfless and the heartbreak that goes with seeing such destruction.
