Galion native Shawn Campo is participating in a Bluffton University cross-cultural experience in Chicago during the month of May.
Campo, along with other Bluffton students will collaborate with the Olive Branch Mission, located in southside Chicago. Students participating in this program will better understand the social, racial and economic struggles facing low income families in an urban environment and one “Christian” response to these issues.
Campo, son of Lupe and Cindy Campo, is a junior majoring in sports management. He was a 2013 graduate of Galion High School.
This experience will fulfill Bluffton’s undergraduate cross-cultural requirement that must be completed before graduation. Students can either complete a cross-cultural experience or take six credit hours in one foreign language.
