Loyola at a Glance
Hundreds of students to unite Saturday for MLK Day of Service
January 25, 2013
This Saturday, more than 900 New Orleans-area university students will participate in a day of service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Students from Loyola University New Orleans, Dillard University, Tulane University and Xavier University will beautify the sculpture gardens at The New Orleans Museum of Art, recycle and sort Mardi Gras beads at Arc of Greater New Orleans, organize libraries at the Community Book Center and mulch a trail in City Park, along with many other projects.
The day of service is the culminating event in The MLK Week 4 Peace, a week of activities commemorating King’s legacy and work. The theme of this year’s Week 4 Peace is “Keep Calm and Dream.”
All participating volunteers will arrive on Tulane’s Uptown campus for registration in the McAlister Auditorium at 8 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26. Busses will transport the students to the various project sites. A celebration of service will occur on Loyola’s campus at 1 p.m. to conclude the day’s activities. For more information or to register, visit the MLK Week 4 Peace Facebook page.
