Watch for Penn State DuBois Students on Outreach Day
As part of new student orientation, the Penn State DuBois Student Life Office has organized Outreach Day, which will put 150 students, plus faculty and staff members, out into the community to help with various projects at businesses and charitable organizations. New incoming freshmen participate in Outreach Day, with the group serving more than a dozen organizations, including animal shelters, historical societies, housing construction projects, and more. Last year was the inaugural Outreach Day, and organizers say it will now be a yearly event.
"Getting students actively involved from the beginning is very important to their overall college experience, and helping them become well-rounded members of the community," said Student Life Coordinator Marly Doty. "What better way to get involved than by giving back to our surrounding community?"
This year's Outreach Day is planned for Friday, August 24. Be on the lookout for Penn State DuBois students, wearing their campus T-shirts, hard at work throughout the area.
