Nearly 1700 students and staff provided about 10,000 hours of volunteer service Sept. 7 at the university’s annual Serve Day. This year’s theme, “Be Known by Love,” was based on John 13:34-35: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Here are a few photos of that love in action.

Team leader Clint Baldwin and the women of Coffin 3 West spent their Serve Day at Medical Teams International. While there, they had the opportunity to explore the Real Life Exhibit. Sophomore Meghan Timmons talks about the powerful impact of her experience.
