Every year, we like to kick off the school year with our Annual New Student Day of Service! Look for the Office of Service Leadership at Orientation to sign up!
Who: Any Concordia Student, Faculy, or Staff Member!... We invite any member of the CU Community, new or returning, to join us for the first service opportunity of the year.
When: Monday, August 29th from 1:00 - 4:00pm
Where: Meet in front of the GRW Library at 1:00pm. We will then head over to Tubman School to serve.
How: Sign-up to join us by visiting the Office of Service Leadership table at the Orientation Information Fair or drop-in to join the group at the start time on Monday!
What: An opportuntiy to help Faubion teachers get ready for the school year! We will be making bulletin boards, cleaning classrooms, organizing supplies, stuffing packets, and so much more to help these teachers get off to a great start! (Note: Faubion School (our closest neighbors!) will be located at Tubman School from 2015 - 2017 while a new school site is under construction)
Why: Concordia University's "New Student" Day of Service is designed to provide incoming students the opportunity to meet other CU students while engaging in exciting, new service orientated activities. Participants have the unique chance to get to know the surrounding Portland community before beginning classes in the fall through doing service at Faubion K-8 School. This is one of Concordia's strongest community partnerships that new students will get to engage in through active service. Individuals who participate get the experience of serving alongside current and new students providing opportunities for growth and acquainting themselves with the campus through a variety of social activities with the Social Change Coordinator Leadership Staff.
