BMK went homeless for a day...



Well, he did it for a class. Dana O'Neill posted an article on the world wide leader today about a class project where Baye Moussa Keita spent a night sleeping in a box on the quad back on April 18. Keita is a student in Jeff Pauline’s Personal and Social Responsibility class, and Prof Pauline wanted to bring awareness to the problem of homelessness. The class all spent a night on the quad, sleeping in a cardboard box - but weren't completely cut off. They were allowed to bring their cell phones with them. Keita was apprehensive about the project at first, but after a visit to a homeless mission, he became more interested.

Thanks to his 6-10 frame, he had to combine two boxes for his temporary home but even the stretched accommodations were rough. He woke up stiff and sore -- "like I was boxing somebody,’’ Keita said -- but with a newfound understanding of what the homeless have to endure.
