    City Serve

    On September 5, 2011, over 40 first year students from the Wesley Center's City Serve orientation program journeyed to Hamline Church, United Methodist to fight malaria.  This first year of partnership proved to be a huge success in both education, getting students excited about volunteering, and making a lasting impact. 

    City Serve, an annual component of new student orientation, is a key part of the Hamline experience.  “Participating in City Serve is one example of Hamline’s mission to teach our students how to lead successful lives of leadership, scholarship, and service, and connect it with the pursuit of the common good,” said Daniel Campbell, communications assistant at the Wesley Center for Spirituality, Service, and Social Justice, said. “Students volunteer, learn about their community and each other, and are challenged to connect this experience with what they’ll be learning in their classes.”

    Students watched "When the Night Comes," an innovative documentary that portrays the very human face - and cost - of malaria.  Following the documentary Daniel Campbell and Beth Beaty, Hamline Church's director of Spiritual Formation collaborated on a special presentation about Imagine No Malaria and how the students could make a difference through educating others.  Then, students worked together to create five nets and hundreds of pipe cleaner mosquitoes that will be used at the church and around Hamline's campus to help generate awareness.
