Community - Campus Day of Service

April 5, 2014

On Saturday, April 5th, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign kicked off National Volunteer Week with an inaugural Community-Campus Day of Service. Over 60 students, faculty and staff worked with six community partners on seven projects to complete pre-construction projects, community garden spring preparation projects, flyering in the community, reorganizing classrooms at Tap in Leadership Academy, cataloging choral literature, and preparing a Bee Garden. A big thank you goes out to all who helped on April 5!

My name is Randy Rice, and I am a Senior in Landscape Architecture. I have interests in community planning/ organization, park design, and sustainable design.

I have worked for the University of Illinois Extension as a Natural Resources Technician, helping organize Sangamon County, IL Master Gardener program. I currently work for the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission as a Planning Intern, and am currently working on the County's Greenways and Trails program. My goal after graduation is to find employment in the public sector in the realm of community design.

My involvement in ESLARP is with the 41st Street Neighborhood Association; specifically in assisting with cleanup, repair and installation of a new path and plantings in their park.
