The first tangible result of the hotly debated Ivy Council will materialize next Saturday, Campus Life Committee Chair Stephen N. Smith '02 announced to the Undergraduate Council at its Monday night meeting.
Smith's promotional announcement for Har'd CORPS--a day of community service coordinated with similar events at the seven other Ivy League schools--was the highlight of a council meeting that literally had nothing on the docket.
Har'd CORPS (which stands for Harvard Community Outreach and Public Service), a registered student group led by Smith, will draw at least 500 students to locations all over Boston for various kinds of community service, Smith estimates.
The project has drawn wide acclaim from council members, despite its origins in the Ivy Council--a body with representatives from each Ivy League school that has come under fire from some council members for wasting council funds and accomplishing little.
"It looks like it will be a great success," said former council President Noah Z. Seton '00, who has had few good things to say about recent council initiatives.
President Fentrice D. Driskell '01 was even more enthusiastic, pointing out three reasons that "Har'd CORPS is so cool."
"One, it promotes unity through a campus-wide event," Driskell said.
According to Smith, while students will split up into groups of between five and 25 to do their projects, all will have the chance to come together at the end of the day to hear speeches and then attend a dance in Loker Commons. Admission will be $3 for Har'd CORPS participants and $5 for others.
