The 21st annual Shack-a-Thon took place last week, with 25 student organizations building a total of 17 shacks on the Brickyard. The Caldwell Fellows built a shack in eight hours out of scrap wood that was donated to the Habitat Re-Store after the shack was taken down.

Fellows slept in the shack every night last week, through rain and shine, to raise money for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.

The Caldwell Fellows program is an intensive leadership-development scholarship program that was created by the Alumni Association to honor the legacy of Chancellor John T. Caldwell.
