Students in service

More than 600 incoming fall freshmen participated in the Outreach Africa community service project Aug. 23 in the Memorial Union Great Hall. They put together more than 45,000 meals containing rice, fortified soy protein, vegetables and essential vitamins and minerals. The meals will be sent to children in Africa.
