Buckeyes Give: Month of Service

Buckeyes Give: Month of Service

Buckeyes give back. It’s who we are. It’s what we do. We help our neighbors, our community, our friends, our family,and we have a blast doing it. So what better time than during the annual Month of Service in April, to make a difference in the world around you?

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Alumni Society has coordinated with volunteer and outreach organizations within the College of Engineering to provide unique opportunities for alumni to participate in activities. Interact with current students and contribute to several meaningful efforts from the college that go well beyond classrooms and research.

All throughout April, stay tuned for announcements regarding opportunities to help give back to the community we call home. Learn more:
