JACKSON, Tenn. – Oct. 28, 2009 – More than 700 Union University students, faculty and staff members will participate in more than 50 service projects in Jackson and West Tennessee Nov. 4 as part of Union’s seventh annual “Campus and Community: A Day of Remembrance and Service.”
The event, part of Union’s Homecoming week of activities, is an opportunity for Union to show its appreciation to the community for its assistance after tornadoes hit the campus in 2002, 2003 and 2008. Union cancels most classes on this day each year to allow the university community to participate in projects at such places as local schools, churches, nursing homes and social organizations.
This year’s Campus and Community activities will begin with a chapel service at 8:30 a.m. At 9 a.m., student groups will depart to their assigned projects, most of which will be completed by lunch or mid-afternoon.
A complete list of projects can be seen at www.uu.edu/events/dayofremembrance/2009.
Due to worsening weather conditions, the Jackson campus will close at 3:30 p.m. today.
Evening classes at Germantown are canceled for tonight.
