WE ARE… Volunteers!

Campus is a beautiful place to be, but one that takes an enormous amount of hard work to maintain. Fortunately, students have the opportunity to lend a helping hand to make the transition into a warm weather campus a little smoother.

According to their website, “the WE ARE campaign is a student organization dedicated to promoting respect and civility at Penn State, University Park.” Their most important event is the Spring UP Day of Service in which they enlist the help of volunteers to work alongside OPP to improve the Penn State aesthetic.

This year’s event will be held on Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Beaver Stadium, the Bahr Recycling Center, and an assortment of on-campus areas will be worked on during the day.

Those wishing to attend should sign up here, and then meet at the Hintz Family Alumni Center on Sunday at 8. Buses will leave at 8:45 a.m. for the volunteer sites and return at 1:30 p.m.

To sweeten the deal, food and free t-shirts are being offered to volunteers. If you’re one of the many Penn State students who will do anything for a free t-shirt, this is a perfect way to achieve that goal while also giving back to the Penn State environment.
