FRANCIS BITTING had been a Philadelphia kid his whole life. And then along came Holy Family University. "Prior to Holy Family, I'd only gone to the Jersey Shore," said Bitting, a junior studying business at the Northeast Philadelphia school. But once at the 60-year-old Catholic university, Bitting traveled to Taos, N.M., and Spokane, Wash., to build homes as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, the "most eye-opening experience" he's ever had, Bitting said. "If you're going to Holy Family, that first day the door is going to open and they'll never stop opening," he said yesterday.
