USP Service Activities

Each semester, the University Scholars Program plans 2-3 service activties open to all Scholars.  Sign-up is typically first come, first served.  This is a great way to give back to your community while at the same time building community with your fellow Scholars.  Please note that these events do not count for Scholars Forum credit unless otherwise stated, and are not restricted to Scholars enrolled in Forum. Contact Chester Brewer ( for information on upcoming service activities, or to suggest future service opportunities.

Special Olympics Over the Edge
Saturday, October 3

Every Year the Special Olympics of North Carolina hosts a fundraising event named Over the Edge. Folks that raise a certain amount of money for the Special Olympics are invited to rappel over the side of the Wells Fargo building in Downtown Raleigh. In short - it's AWESOME! They always need volunteers to help get the day set up and to keep guests informed and entertained while they wait their turn. It's a really fun way to help out this amazing organization. *This event is now full. Ali Davis and Kelsey Shevlin will be leading this event.
