Service Events


Each semester, the University Scholars Program plans 2-3 service activties open to all University 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 University Scholars enrolled in Scholars Forum. Contact Chester Brewer ( for information on upcoming service activities or to suggest future service opportunities.

Special Olympics Regional Aquatics Event

Every year the University Scholars Program lends a helping hand to one of our favorite organizations – the Special Olympics of North Carolina. This year we will return to their Regional Aquatics Event to help with the wonderful athletes that come from all over to compete. They will need help timing, escorting athletes, serving lunch and cleaning up after the event. It’s a great time and lunch and a T-shirt are provided. Sign up for this event by completing this form. The deadline to register is February 29.
