Welcome to the website of the Windshield Survey, conducted by nine honors students at Georgia College and State University. The Windshield Survey is being conducted as a part of the fall honors seminar on utopian and dystopian societies.
The purpose of the Windshield Survey is to determine the number of substandard houses in the city of Milledgeville, Georgia. Our endeavors will help Habitat for Humanity eliminate substandard housing in the twenty-first century. By knowing the number of substandard houses in the city, Habitat for Humanity will be able to have a better idea of the number of people that need to be helped. Habitat for Humanity also will be able to access the adequate funds to help these people.
Eliminating substandard housing is Habitat for Humanity's first step to creating a more utopian community. The Windshield Survey's purpose is to help Habitat for Humanity reach their goal for a more utopian community.
