Alicia Cotsoradis, 15, Lawrence, lays bundled in blankets as temperatures approach the freezing mark Sunday Nov. 20, 2011 on the front lawn of Bishop Seabury Academy. Cotsoradis is one of many Seabury students who are spending the night outdoors in the cold while fasting for 24 hours so they can get firsthand experience about what the homeless population goes through every night. Organizer Bill Gollier said that while the event can never emulate what a homeless person goes through, it will give the students some insight. The annual sleep out, in its seventh year, is part of the Seabury food drive. “If one person brings food out, then it’s worth it,” Gollier said.
