#161: CommUniversity Day

If you're driving around town today, you may spot groups of college-aged students out and about, perhaps a strange sight for non-football gameday, non- Friday night.  Explanation: today is the 3rd annual CommUniversity Day, a Notre Dame student organized day of service.
While these students are volunteering at projects that range from painting fire hydrants to door-to-door food pantry collections, another part of this event aims to increase the interaction between town-gown.  Community residents are encouraged to come onto Notre Dame's campus to see what this internationally-renowned, Catholic university (and St. Joe County's biggest employer) is all about.  Tours leave from the Robinson Community Learning Center (RCLC) between 1:00 and 3:30 pm, and from 1:00 - 4:00 pm, there is a kids festival and Easter Egg hunt on Irish Green, the space right across from Eddy Street Commons.

The day finishes with a picnic at RCLC, to which all are invited.  Come get burgers and cook-out fare from 4:00 - 6:00 pm at 921 N. Eddy Street (right near the five points intersection).
