Grads Give Back is an invitation to reach out to the St. Louis community through service before you go forth as the Class of 2016 and receive a terrific t-shirt for your efforts! There are multiple ways to be a part of Grads Give Back. You may participate in one of the community service projects organized through the Office of Service & Spiritual Life and the Community Service Club. You and your fellow grads can come up with your own project or volunteer through a campus organization. Perhaps you are volunteering somewhere already.

If you plan to participate in a way other than through the Office of Service & Spiritual Life and the Community Service Club, please send photos of yourself volunteering as well as the contact information of the representative at the agency with which you volunteered via e-mail to Steve DiSalvo, Director of the Office of Service & Spiritual Life at sdisalvo@maryville.edu no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, 2016. Include information about your t-shirt size and contact information about where you can be reached.

Keep an eye out for portal announcements, e-mails, and digital signage about service opportunities.
