Staff editorial: Devote more than one day to service

The Hatchet’s editorial board encourages students to do community service not only on the upcoming national service day honoring Martin Luther King Jr., but to continue that service after the holiday has passed.

Although most GW students are looking forward to a long weekend, many Colonials are also looking forward to Monday’s day of service, which honors Martin Luther King Jr. This national day of service serves as a reminder that the first official weekend back is not simply a time to catch up with friends or get ahead on “syllabus week” readings. Instead, it is a time to give back.
