HOLLINS Cultural & Community Engagement
Day of Service

Day of Service is a three-hour service project during orientation week that provides an opportunity for students to link with their host community right from the start! The SHARE Fair gives students the chance to sign up for a service experience on a regular basis throughout the year.

MLK, Jr., Day of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: "What are you doing for others?"

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. Hollins University observes this Day of Service on the Friday before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Students, staff and faculty at Hollins have the opportunity to volunteer their time at local schools, medical facilities and agencies that offer services to the community.

Big Event

The Big Event is a volunteer opportunity offered to the students, faculty and staff at Hollins in the spring each year. This day is dedicated to the neighbors around the Hollins campus to help them with any indoor/outdoor projects. Some of these projects may include painting, raking, house cleaning, etc. This opportunity allows everyone volunteering to not only give back to the surrounding community but also to get to know our neighbors.
