Rose-Hulman students are looking forward to graduation this weekend, but today some of them put their focus on the community.
About two dozen RHIT students descended on Reach Services for several hours of volunteer work. Students helped with painting, cleaning and general maintenance.
“Volunteers are the life and blood of a not-for-proft. We have been blessed to get 25 volunteers, but they’re going to end up doing what I call the grunt work. So, whenever we have opportunities for a large group to do projects that we’re not able to do, it helps us out greatly,” said Resource Development Coordinator Travis Phillips.
Volunteering is not a requirement for Rose students, but we’re told, up to 80% of the Fighting Engineers get involved with community projects.
