Director of Student Life Eric Mullen, who oversees student organizations on GRCC’s campus says ideas are still percolating. In a campus-wide e-mail, GRCC President Steve Ender, congratulated students on their passion to help the people of Haiti and encouraged everyone at the college to participate in any way they are able.
