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.

Independent projects:

One of the most popular ways to get involved in Alumni Week of Service is through our independent projects. With this option, alumni can volunteer in any way that they desire from anywhere in the world. Some alums continue projects that they've already started with their favorite organizations, others connect with friends and family for group projects, and some volunteer virtually from home. All projects big or small are welcome and every contribution makes a difference.
