"I'm typically better with animals than I am with humans," says the pre-veterinary major from from Maple Plain, Minn.
Before a recent service project with Habitat for Humanity, she didn't consider herself much of a "hammer person," either.
"I have taken a woodworking class. Building a shelf, a stool, a bowl — really tiny things," she says. "But nothing like this."
Dufur is part a BCU Learning Community pilot program that focuses on teaching freshmen beyond the classroom, by way of professional mentorships, internships and service projects. One of those service projects included a recent Friday morning spent at a Habitat building site in Sioux City's Riverside area.
