What started out as a less-than-serious hypothetical posed over pizza pies after a long day of rehearsal last Saturday became, for Wade Tandy (COL ‘09), a goal that he’s well on his way to achieving.
The thousands of silent protesters in front of the Capitol building last Saturday must have appeared to tourists to be the most polite agitators ever to stand on that lawn. Not a word could be heard amongst the observers as one lone voice echoed from the speaker’s platform, but the crowd rippled with constant, soundless motion.
College students are volunteering more than ever before, according to a new study, “College Students Helping America” released this month by the Corporation for National & Community Service. Volunteering and community service at Georgetown are part of this trend.
