2017 WSU Service Day of Remembrance
Weber State University Service Day of Remembrance will be held Sept. 20 for all students, community members, faculty and staff to serve the community in honor of someone who has passed away or for those who embody service in the community.
Sponsored by the Center for Community Engaged Learning (CCEL), events begin in the Shepherd Union at 7:30 a.m. with a light breakfast and free T-shirts for the first 60 people in the Shepherd Union room 232 (Center for Diversity and Unity). If you are unable to attend the morning orientation, instructions will be given at each site regarding details and recording service hours.
Participants are responsible for transportation to the two off-site locations or can choose to remain at the Ogden Campus for on-campus service projects.
There are three projects to choose from:
Ogden Nature Center (966 W 12th Street, Ogden)
10-15 volunteers from Weber State University will work with 75 students in their senior year from the DaVinci Academy to restore natural habitat, clear invasive weed species and learn about sustainable ways to improve and protect the environment.
