The fourth annual Hamilton Serves took place on Wednesday, Aug. 24, with the entire first-year class and new transfer students going out to volunteer at 61 community organizations. Amy James, COOP director, noted this year was a milestone as now “every student on campus will have gone through the program.”
Hamilton Serves began as an Orientation activity in 2008 with the class of 2012. This year, members of the class of 2015 painted at the Kirkland Library, played outdoors with children in a summer program at Utica’s Neighborhood Center, walked dogs and tended cats at the Rome Humane Society and harvested vegetables in the For The Good garden in Utica, among other service projects.
