Students poised to make community impact
Release Date Friday, August 16, 2013
The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology encourages students to marry pursuit with purpose, which is why community service is an integral part of our new student orientation activities this fall at the School of Mines.
Upon the request of incoming President Heather Wilson, this program supports the university’s efforts in encouraging students to demonstrate a commitment to citizenship, civic engagement, and service to their community. Also as an early kick-off to the Day of Caring, we are partnering with United Way on this new student service project.
From 1:30-4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 25, hundreds of students will have the opportunity to participate in clean-up, restoration, landscaping, and painting projects on the campus, surrounding neighborhoods and hillsides, and work with local service organizations including Feeding South Dakota.
This event is a precursor to the United Way Day of Caring on September 5th. For more information on the United Way Day of Caring, visit the Black Hills United Way website or download the Day of Caring brochure.
