A group of Franklin College students played sports, painted and wrote letters as part of a national day of service Monday.

On Monday, 60 students from Franklin College participated in volunteer activities for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, according to Terri Roberts, coordinator of multicultural and diversity services at the college.

Franklin had set up volunteer activities for students on the holiday in the past but not in recent years. This year, the college wanted students to have the chance to give back to the community, and more students signed up than he expected, Roberts said.
