PROVIDE SERVICE TO YOUR COMMUNITY - REGISTER TO PARTICIPATE BELOW
WSU Alumni Week of Service: October 15-22, 2022

For one week annually in the fall, WSU alumni from around the country come together for one of our favorite happenings – Alumni Week of Service. This event is dedicated to showcasing the incredible ways that #WarriorsGiveBack.

Volunteering is easy when you choose something you love or are already involved in. Warriors are encouraged to think about the ways they already volunteer or to select projects that best fit their lifestyle and passions.

Alumni are also encouraged to think of new ways to give back independently, with other alumni, or through affinity groups or employers. Regardless of how, when, or where you volunteer, we want to celebrate as we join forces for the greater good this fall.
