Day of Service

An annual service day within the Columbus community which partners with over 30 non-profits to provide students, faculty, staff, and community partners with an opportunity to engage through service. This day is designed for students to gain more insight into how service impacts our community. We hope that it creates the initial opportunity for students to network with our community partners and serve them throughout the academic year. More information on Day of Service
