The women's basketball team went to the Northwest Side Housing Center with a group of about 20 people from DePaul to help clean up a neighborhood. Among the many duties were cleaning up the garbage, raking leaves, mowing the lawn, cutting shrubs and picking weeds.







Earlier this week, DePaul hosted a group of Tiger Cub Scouts from the Lincoln Park neighborhood and met with Dave Corzine for a tour of the Sullivan Athletics Center before joining Mac Calloway and men's basketball player Jamee Crockett for some fitness and basketball drills.
