Thirty years of Project Impact

Often, the most valuable lessons learned by Union College students are not taught in a classroom. They aren’t found in any textbook, and class attendance isn’t required. In fact, for some lessons, class will be canceled.

On September 8, more than 800 students and employees will voluntarily swap pencils and paper for paintbrushes and cleaning supplies for the 30th anniversary of Project Impact, the college's service day. “We want to be God’s hands and feet,” said Anna Coridan, junior nursing major and 2011 Project Impact coordinator.
