COMMUNITY SERVICE

Project Serve

Project Servce students  participate in comminity service.

Get involved before the semester even begins! Project Serve is an optional community service experience for freshmen and transferring students. Participants will spend three days volunteering in Baltimore City and County before orientation begins.

Take a look at what Project Serve means to our students!

Past Project Serve experiences have included:

  • Sorting donations at the Maryland Food Bank
  • Preparing meals at the Helping Up Mission
  • Playing Bingo with residents at the Pickersgill Retirement Community

In addition to community service activities, there will be several teambuilding exercises, social activities, and a celebration dinner. All activities are led by trained student leaders.

Project Serve participants also have the opportunity to connect to our residential learning community - Tigers Serving Others. This is where students live together on the same floor during the academic year and continue to learn about and participate in community service. This exciting residential learning community is a partnership between Student Activities and Housing and Residence Life. Students will find out their housing assignment from Housing & Residence Life in August via e-mail.

Applications are now open! They will remain open until Sunday, June 1st.
