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.
