JHU student mappers
Johns Hopkins University B'more Day of Service  
On January 21, twenty Johns Hopkins freshman hit the streets around the Homewood campus, clipboards in hand, to map local assets. 
They traversed four scripted routes to discover more about the resources in neighborhoods surrounding JHU.  They took photographs and notes to help create a new interactive map  -  B'more Homewood Neighborhoods Map. Its purpose is to help orient students to the recreational and volunteer opportunities in the area in which they will live during their college years.   
The day was cold, but sunny. The students were engaged and curious.   We thank them for a great start to this map and look forward to building it into an ever richer resource!
