As the warm weather starts to roll around and the academic year begins to come to a close, the amount of upcoming events on campus are numerous.
One event that is important to the Simmons College community is Global Service Day. Every year since 2000, Simmons College has celebrated with a college-wide Scholarship and Service Day Initiative. The Scott/ Ross Center hosts a variety of events that reflect Simmons' commitment as a College to service and the Boston community. Events have included workshops, service projects with community-partners on-and-off campus, letter writing campaigns, and pledge signings for the YWCA'S Stand Against Racism campaign.

Global Service Day Sign Up
Carolyn Grimes, Program Director at the Scott/Ross Center, has seen the growth and impact Global Service Day has had on the Simmons community over the years. Carolyn Grimes believes "Global Service Day is an excellent opportunity for students to give back to the community and learn about some of our community partners. There are many options both on campus and off to be involved and embody the Simmons mission". This year, Global Service Day will be on April 27th and there are plenty of service projects to get involved including volunteering with the Women's Lunch Place, Community Servings and many others.
Carolyn Grimes added, "I encourage students to get together with their friends and volunteer for the afternoon or to attend an event and meet new people! There should be something for everyone. Our community partners are expecting us and we need your help!"
To sign up to participate on April 27th, please visit http://globalserviceday.eventbrite.com and follow Global Service Day on Twitter at #gsd12.
