Days of Service

What is Days of Service?

Days of Service encourages UNG students, faculty, staff, and alumni to partake in community service and perform random acts of kindness. At the beginning of UNG’s fall semester, the university host its Weeks of Welcome. During this time, UNG encourages students to participate in random acts of kindness and/or contribute 3 hours of community service in their local community. 

How Does it impact the Community?

UNG encourages students, faculty, staff, and alumni to “pay it forward”. Days of Service grants the opportunity for the members of UNG to impact the community by providing service and engaging in random acts of kindness. By members of UNG performing community service and acts of kindness, the community benefits by receiving aid from UNG members. 

When is it?

Days of Service occurs the first week of UNG’s fall semester. Days of Service is part of the Weeks of Welcome during the beginning of the fall semester to welcome new and returning students. 

How Do I Get Involved?

Students can perform a wide variety acts to “pay it forward”. These acts may include, but are not limited to, leaving kind messages and statements in public places, buying someone a cup of coffee, or volunteering with a local nonprofit.

After completing an act of kindness, post it to social media using the hashtag: #UNGTogether. Using the hashtag allows everyone to see the great acts of kindness generated within the community. The #UNGTogether campaign allows anyone within UNG on any campus to participate and share their actions during Days of Service.
