Ever heard of a college town where the kids stayed on the campus and avoid the town? I hadn’t, until today. Evidently, that’s the way things have been shaking at Franciscan University for a while. I guess that’s just the way things are. Sigh.
Sigh? Are you freakin’ kidding me?!
Enter Marc Barnes and his classmates. They have an idea (probably inspired by beers and Blessed JPII, or vice-versa) to help revitalize the downtown area where FUS is located. How? By providing a restored venue for musical acts “down the hill” from the school. He and his team need a little help, though. Roll clip!
A college town where the students stay up on campus, and don’t go into town? What is wrong with that picture?! I’m trying to think what my experience at UCLA would have been like without being able to enjoy Westwood. Hmmmm. Nope. Can’t.
Help Mr. Barnes TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!
The kids at FUS, and the city of Steubenville, need this project to succeed. Do them a solid and help them out. Head over to Marc’s place to get more in-depth information on The Harmonium Project, and see how much work has been done to date. Also, go like their page on Facebook. And one more thing…
Share their campaign with reckless abandon!
