College students from Indiana and Kentucky are in Tallahassee to help build homes with Habitat for Humanity.

The college students decided to spend their spring break hammering nails and breaking a sweat, instead of hitting the beach.

The home they are currently working on is in the Tallahassee Mabry Oaks neighborhood, and the students are excited to be lending a helping hand.

Ryan Wolf is a Sophomore at Indiana University. He said, "The families themselves get to come out and walk around the house, and they individually talk to us a lot. So it's really great knowing that you are making an impact in that persons life in helping them build a home, that they're going to live in for years."

The students are participating in Tallahassee's Collegiate Challenge which started last week and will end on Friday. More than 12-hundred students are building houses nationwide, with more than 200 locations.
