COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A lot of college students look forward to heading home soon for relaxing winter breaks, but some Ohio students are dedicating their breaks to volunteer work instead.

Twelve veterinary students from Ohio State University are heading down to New Orleans to help animal rescue groups care for the more than 45-thousand animals homeless in the city.

Another group of students from Bowling Green State University are dedicating a week of their time to Habitat for Humanity.

About 100 students are heading down to help tear down drywall and floors damaged by Hurricane Katrina.
