The Office of Advancement is proud to announce that the Volunteer Work Project reached 7,025 hours donated by 123 volunteers in 2012, saving the College approximately $130,096, according to end-of-year estimates.

Over 80 alumni showed up in June for the Alumni Work Project that preceded Reunion 2012. These volunteers worked in the Oliver Kettering Library, Science Building, on the Antioch Farm and elsewhere performing a variety of tasks. While a lot got done, much still needed to be done. Many of the alums, having had a great time working on the College, joined in pledging “just one more week” of volunteer work. As a result, a record number of people turned out for the October work project.
