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 team building exercises, social activities, and a celebration banquet. Students will be split up into ten groups of 10 students serve at various local non-profits and homeowners. All activities are led by trained student leaders.

Tigers Serving Others

Project Serve participants also have the optional 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 who paid their housing deposit by May 1st will receive their housing assignment from Housing & Residence Life in August via their TU e-mail.
