The low temperature in Green Bay on Nov. 5 was 36. Sponsored by the college's Peace and Justice Center, the week's events included a campus-wide Shack-a-Thon to raise awareness about homelessness. It also raised money for the St. Norbert College/Habitat for Humanity chapter, which will take part in De Pere Build IV in fall of 2008. (Rick Evans photo)
