Haiti and the Earthquake

Journey of Hope

On Tuesday, Jan. 12, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake shook Port-au-Prince, Haiti where twelve Lynn University students and two professors were for a January Term course entitled, “Journey of Hope to Haiti.” The Lynn University group was staying at the Hotel Montana in Port-au-Prince. Eight of the Lynn University students returned home after the quake, but four students and two professors were lost. See the Journey of Hope.
