NCU Students, Faculty, and Staff Serve Community
Minneapolis, MN- North Central University students took some time away from the classroom to serve the local community on September 13, 2011. Community Outreach Day, an annual service event, involves NCU students, faculty, and staff, volunteering with various organizations, and projects within the community. Some of the work done by students included packing food for less unfortunate people, cleaning and organizing, maintenance, and much more. With over one thousand working hours completed by students, Community Outreach Day was able to serve over 30 different locations throughout Minneapolis.
This year North Central University and NCU SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise), in partnership with several local organizations facilitated an event titled ‘Night to Unite’ on September 13, 2011. Night to Unite was a free celebration event for the residents, businesses, organizations, and students who spent time cleaning and/or beautifying the area around their home or place of operation. The gathering included fun activities for Elliot Park residents including games free food, fantastic music, hundreds of prizes, and special guests.
