Knights Serve!

Saturday, September 11 - 9:00 am - 12:00 noon

Knights Serve! is our annual service day for first year and transfer students. The event will take place on Saturday, September 11, 2021 from 9am-12pm. Student volunteers will meet at the College Union lobby to be assigned to teams that will engage in projects like cleaning, painting, winterizing, weeding, organizing, contributing to a group art project, and completing other tasks and activities on campus and in the local village and town. 

This event is a great way to meet other students who are new to campus and to learn about our community through hands on experience. Projects will introduce you to the many opportunities available in Geneseo to volunteer and build a foundation of service while at the College that will support your future success in college and life! All supplies and materials will be provided - just come ready to serve!
