My Project Impact

It was cold. Really cold. So cold that when I rinsed my hands after eating my donut, they tingled under the water. But I didn’t even question why I was outside at 7:30 on a Thursday instead of snuggled comfortably in my bed. The day is all about serving others. Project Impact would not be put off by a bit of chilly weather.

Union College students to impact Lincoln ... for the 34th time

“It’s incredible to watch the amount of people that come to serve each year,” said Inonge Kasaji, the 2014 Project Impact coordinator. “Nobody ever walks away from Project Impact saying, ‘Those were the worst four hours of my life.’ Students volunteer each year because they want to connect; with each other, their community, and really do something good for others. That’s how is should be all the time.”

Beccai to speak for first "Family Worship" of the year

Beccai is the youth pastor at Green Lake Church, a Seventh-day Adventist community in Seattle, Wash. Although he speaks with a British lilt, his roots reach back to Accra, Ghana, the land of his birth. Living much of his life in countries where he is an ethnic minority, he has developed a passion for helping youth forge diverse networks of relationships.

Serving with pride

Graduates from every era serve God and country at home and abroad

Drafted and volunteers, land and air and sea, male and female, medical staff and combatant, wartime and peace, Union College alumni have participated in military service since the school’s founding.

Recognizing veterans

Most veterans appreciate being recognized, not only by the military, but also by the civilians they serve. For many of us who served in Vietnam, that recognition was a long time coming. I returned from the war through San Francisco late at night because we had been warned that the war protesters might go after those of us having to fly in uniform.

Cookie Call

How care packages kept alumni connected to Union College while serving in Vietnam

For Allan Stone, there was nothing like a cookie and the latest issue of the Clocktower, especially when stuck in a war zone thousands of miles from Union College’s peaceful campus.

It was 1969 and Stone had been drafted into the U.S. Army and shipped to Vietnam just months after graduating from Union with a degree in business administration. So far from home, he and his fellow soldiers often found it difficult to stay connected with loved ones.

Union College welcomes a new president

Farewell to Dr. John Wagner

The sunny Sabbath afternoon found six or seven students at Dr. Malcolm and Sharon Russell’s home. The two Union College employees, he the vice president for Academic Administration, and she the director of guest services, often invited students to their home. As we settled in, talking and laughing, the smell of lasagna drifted from the kitchen.

Preparing for Military Service

Union's Medical Corps trains potential draftees

When people complain about completing a task “under fire,” they rarely mean it to be interpreted literally. For former Battalion Surgeon Bill Swan, there is no other way to interpret it.

Student veterans at Union College

Two young men from two different home states: two branches of the military and two different stories to tell. Their experiences, their words and their outcomes, however, are similar. One college. One faith. One God. Union College is privileged to claim two young men who not only served their country honorably, but who now also serve God through the sharing of their different and yet remarkably similar stories with others.

The mystery of the Gettysburg flag

In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Union College library director Sabrina Riley recounts her attempts to discover the authenticity of a flag reputedly flown at the Gettysburg Address.
