Last week classes were cancelled on Wednesday for the annual Service Day. Students could sign up for a variety of projects on campus as well as a trip to Camp Mennoscah that I was lucky enough to be on.
The biggest project was the cleanup of the Kidron Canal, which runs through campus in between the athletic and academic buildings. President White was really excited about this project because it would help tear down the physical barrier between the athletic and academic sides of campus. The football team and many other students worked on it, and it’s an impressive change.
Other projects included setting up an exhibit at the Kaufman Museum, eradicating honeysuckle in the museum nature area, gardening, and putting up solar panels on top of Voth Hall.
Everyone was very excited for Service Day, and the potluck hosted by Bethel College Mennonite Church wasn’t a bad incentive either!
