On Saturday, Aug. 28, 60 students and faculty in the College of Business Administration at UT Knoxville will put down their books and pick up their hammers for a building blitz. The Tennessee Organization of MBAs (TOMBA) students are building their eighth annual Habitat for Humanity house.
For the past seven years, MBA students at UT Knoxville have devoted part of their fall semester to building houses with low-income families through the Habitat for Humanity program. The Tennessee Organization of MBAs (TOMBA)’s community service project is featured in a “Volunteers Rock the World!” video now posted on Ready for the World’s Facebook page. This year’s TOMBA Habitat project began in September and took several weekends, but thanks to the video the MBA group made to chronicle its work, you can see the entire construction job, from beginning to end, in just four minutes and 13 seconds.
