Step Forward Day


Step Forward Day is a one day service event for first-year students, freshmen, and transfer students. Incoming students have the opportunity to participate in service projects throughout the Columbia community. Students meet for registration in the morning and can choose from a variety of volunteer opportunities. Each service location is led to by two student leaders.

There is no need to pre-register for Step Forward Day. Students just need to show up at 8:30 a.m. on the first floor of the MU Student Center to register and select a volunteer location. Transportation, breakfast, and a t-shirt are provided!

Step Forward Day is an excellent opportunity for incoming students to familiarize themselves with the campus and local community, and to meet other incoming students interested in service!

Step Forward Day is Saturday, August 19, 2017 starting at 8:30 a.m. in the MU Student Center.
