Before MAPP alum Abraham (Abe) Murrell (B.S. Architecture ’13) starts his master’s degree in architecture this fall, he has a small to-do list. It’s an ambitious list to squeeze into six months: Abe wants to travel, volunteer and also get some hands-on experience in construction. Even more ambitious, is how he plans to do it: On May 22, 2015, Abe will set out with 31 other volunteers on a cross-country, 4,200-mile fund-raising bike trip to benefit affordable housing efforts. The program, called Bike and Build, will take the team from Charleston, South Carolina, to Santa Cruz, California.
