'Not a Day Off, But a Day On'

Each year, students from seven Penn State campuses in Western Pennsylvania commemorate the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday by coming together and performing volunteer work. This year’s event was held on Monday, January 16, with Fayette serving as the host campus. Nearly 100 students participated. Instead of having the day off, the student volunteers headed out to various non-profit sites to work.
