Lincoln, Neb.—Union College students are known for singing the school pep song "Slinga de ink" for most of the 115-year history of the school. But on Aug. 24, you will find almost the entire campus slinging paint or rakes, shovels, mops and scrub brushes instead. An anticipated 800+ volunteers will start the academic year as they have for 25 years with Project Impact, an annual community service event. Project Impact is the longest-running and largest ongoing collegiate volunteer event in the country.
LINCOLN—If you can't spend three weeks exploring tropical countries for college credit, venture into the photos of the Union College students who did.
A photograph exhibit gives a remarkable view of the 15 students and three faculty members' journey through Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras this summer, and is on display in Union College's McClelland Art Gallery from Aug. 13–Sept. 10.
