Community Plunge Participants are an Inspiration and an Example!


Contributed by Don Austin

I would like to send a special thanks to the 108 participants of the 15th annual Community Plunge experience, a part of the First-Year program Jumpstart.

Over the course of 2 days, 108 students contributed more than 1,000 hours of community service to 12 different local non-profit organizations.

They are a true example of the impact of student involvement in the local area!

I would like to acknowledge the 29 student leaders who helped make Community Plunge a HUGE success this year!
