Knights' First Day of Service

The Office of Student Volunteerism and Community Engagement annually offers an opportunity for new students to participate in community service as part of their Orientation experience at the University. This year, there will be a combination of on-campus and nearby off-campus options available to those who would like to participate. Projects will be followed by group reflection. As we are limited to 200 students participating, sign-ups will be first-come, first serve.

Fantasy Football 

Come be in community with people with all abilities with the Office of Student Volunteerism and Community Engagement, the NY State Office of People with Development Disabilities (OPWDD). 

Volunteers will meet with the folks from OPWDD Supported Living Homes to engage and socialize and manage their fantasy football teams. No experience is necessary other than an interest in engaging individuals in an inclusive and supportive way and wanting to have fun! We will provide free pizza for all participants.
