Campus & Community:

A Day of Remembrance & Service

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 marks Union University’s sixth annual Day of Remembrance campus wide service day. This is a time when faculty, staff, and students join together to give thanks to God for His protection over our campus during the 2002, 2003, and 2008 tornados.


The day begins at 8:30 am in the chapel for a special corporate worship service. The service will conclude at 9:00 am so service teams can re-group in the assigned locations for final instructions before leaving to serve.


If you are interested in participating in a project, please sign up in Campus Ministries before Tuesday, November 4th.

It is important to sign up ahead of time, as most projects have limited space to ensure meaningful work for all participants.

Project time slots are open on a first-come, first-served basis.


Please click on the “Projects” to find out more information about the projects that are available.


Classes will be cancelled in order for students, faculty, and staff to serve together.  However, the following labs will meet: 

BIO 325L (2:00 - 4:50), CHE 111L, & CHE 319L, PHY 111L


Please check with your professor if you are currently in a lab to see if your class will be held on this day.

In addition, student teaching, graduate and evening classes will be held

on November 5th.

In the fall of 2003, students, faculty, and staff at Union began a campus wide service day call “Day of Remembrance.” This service day is our way of thanking the community for the help they gave our university during the tornado relief efforts of 2002, 2003, and most recently February of 2008. The purpose of this day is serve and provide encouragement to the ongoing work of our local schools, churches non-profit organizations.
