Hot Fundraiser to Help NWU Students With Tropical Biology Experience

Nebraska Wesleyan University biology students are hoping a hot fundraiser will help take them to a hot climate to study tropical biology.

On Monday, December 7, NWU biology students will participate in HuHot Mongolian Grill’s Helping Hands Program, which gives volunteers to opportunity to cook on the restaurant’s 2,200 lb., 970,000 BTU grill while raising money for a specific cause.

Thirteen NWU biology students will travel to Costa Rica for two weeks in January for a tropical biology class, which includes reef and volcano tours, hiking, and whale and dolphin watching. The students will also conduct independent research at a mid-elevation rainforest biological station.

Students will cook at HuHot Mongolian Grill from 5 to 9 p.m. In addition to tips, HuHot’s Helping Hands Program will donate 10 percent of the profits earned on Monday night. HuHot is located at 201 N. 66th Street in Lincoln.
