Tuesday, Sept. 21, the army fanned out. On the beach, in the hills, throughout Southern California, a blue-and-gold mass of humanity gave service a new meaning. More than 5,000 Bruin volunteers — new freshmen and transfer students joined by other members of the extended Bruin community — took part in service projects across Los Angeles for the second annual UCLA Volunteer Day, the nation's largest one-day service project for new university students.
From early in the morning through the afternoon, UCLA Magazine live-blogged from Volunteer Day Command Central, bringing you real-time reports, videos and photos of this extraordinary day, courtesy of guest blogger Harlan Lebo, director of UCLA's College Market and Undergraduate Communications.
A full story rounding up the day's events gives you all the details about activities at the 22 volunteer sites, from homeless shelters to public schools to 25 miles of coastline.
