The Class of 2023 Day of Service is an opportunity for first year students to come together and contribute to the greater Philadelphia area. Whether it is picking up a rake, shovel, or simply using their muscle, students will be able to see first-hand the impact they can have on their community.

Participants will work alongside other first year students, upperclassmen, University employees and our community partner "The Friends of Gorgas Park." SJU calls us to live greater and a Day of Service provides a unique opportunity to do so.  We hope you will join us.
