FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Parts of town look a little better thanks to Manchester University pharmacy students.

More than 200 students spread out across the city to help clean up for different organizations.

About two dozen people helped the Dare to Dream northwest of Fort Wayne.

There, students were painting and helping with landscaping.

"If you think about it, it's not that hard. I think we all have some free time that we can go out and serve the community to help the people out there," said student Shantel Schashei.

Manchester University requires doctoral students to do community service projects.

Thursday's projects were a part of yearly orientation.
