UNIVERSITY OF SAINT FRANCIS
A university education can be an expensive proposition. But it doesn't have to be. USF has one of the lowest tuition costs of any private school in Indiana.
In an effort to assist all students, the university offers many different types of scholarships, grants, and other financial assistance programs. Many adult students choose to take advantage of the tuition assistance program at their place of employment. The university supports the idea of employer reimbursement programs and demonstrates this by offering deferred payment of fees until the completion of the semester.
Earning a college degree can be an expensive venture. USF is committed to making an education affordable. Let us know how we can help. Stop by and visit or call the Office of Admissions at (800) 729-4732 or (260) 434-3279.

CANTEBURY HIGH SCHOOL CHS SOPHOMORE CLASS FRAMES 3rd HABITAT FOR HUMANITY HOME IN 2002
On Friday, May 3rd the sophomore class of CHS framed the 3rd Habitat for Humanity home of 2002. Sixty-two students gathered at 2309 25th Avenue with hammers in hand to construct the future home of the Sergey and Olga Severenchuk family.
CHS has developed a program for both sophomore and junior students, which requires that they complete 40 hours of community service. This sophomore class project, which is taking the place of a class trip, is designed to introduce the class to the fun and rewarding aspects of community service.
Rita Hayes, Karen Smith, and Kathy Warr, sophomore class parent representatives, assisted with the project. Rita Hayes said that she has been involved with Habitat for Humanity on several builds, and that it is her hope that the project will help the students bond as a class and give them an opportunity to develop and demonstrate leadership skills.
The Severenchuk family, Sergey, Olga, and their six children are immigrants from Latvia. They filled out an application with Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity in November of 2001, received Board approval in March of 2002 and immediately began an intense effort to accumulate the 300 Sweat Equity Hours (volunteer labor) they needed to qualify for their own home. In record time, they have earned all but the last 25 of those hours, which Habitat requires them to earn on their own home.
The Severenchuk home will be a 4-bedroom, 2-bath home because of the size of the family. As with other Habitat homes, it will be built on a slab and without a garage. Once the home is built and the family has completed their required classes, the home will be sold to them without profit and on a 20-year, no-interest loan.
