The First Day of University 100 Service Day had an amazing outcome. With only two days left for the students to complete their volunteer service. Hopefully the students will be passionate and willing to help those in need and make their home away from home a better place. This reporter can only hope that the next couple of days are as successful as this one was. This reporter also would like to say thank you for making the university grounds better for everyone.
