Community Day Spring 2015

The College of St. Scholastica Community Day
Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Our spring Community Day will offer a number of interesting options to celebrate "I Love to Read Month." Students can sign up to participate in the Day at the Capitol. Faculty, staff and students can register to attend the day-long UMD Diversity Summit or the Diversity Mapping session from 1-3 in BWC 294. Gently used children's books will be collected by the CSS Education Club (drop box outside Campus Ministry) which will be donated.

Dignitas students and faculty are preparing food, raising money, publicizing the event and delivering the Thanksgiving in the Spring meal to people in need in our community.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to register for volunteer activities of the day listed below. Elementary school kids are eager for the opportunity to read with college students! After registration is closed, you will be contacted by a volunteer group leader about travel plans and details for your site.
