“Every year for Project Impact, students provide acts of kindness in the community. When they come back, they’re smiling and laughing—they’re happy they did something for others,” said Inonge Kasaji, junior social work major and outreach co-coordinator in Union College’s Campus Ministries. “Why wouldn’t you want to keep that going the whole year?”
The school year is almost upon Union College, and with it, 26 Sabbaths to enjoy.
