University wide service days usually occur two times a semester.
FALL SEMESTER: Typically the Fall Community Service Day is scheduled for the Saturday before classes begin on Monday. For 2014, the TSU FALL COMMUNITY SERVICE DAY is scheduled for August 23 in Gentry Center with you arriving at 7:00 a.m. The Fall Service Day provides you the opportunity to earn 4 hours toward the UNIV1000 requirement of 8 hours. Another smaller community service day occurs approximately mid-way through the semester.
SPRING SEMESTER: The first service day is that of the MLK Day of Service in January and also provides 4 hours of service toward the UNIV1000 requirement. View brief video of the 2014 MLK Day of Service. The second service day is scheduled for late March or mid-April for warmer weather!
