A Chance to BEE the Difference


10/23/2018

More than 500 St. Ambrose University students and alumni will join forces from 1-4 p.m. Nov. 11 to help campus neighbors and families prepare their homes and yards for winter.

Bee the Difference Day is an annual campus-wide volunteer day, fully organized by the SAU Student Government Association. Students break into teams and give four hours of service to the surrounding community, completing projects that range from raking leaves to decluttering yards.

In the process of giving back, students get to know their neighbors and have a positive impact on the community.

SGA reaches out to student clubs and organizations to take part, and helps coordinate house registration and where teams will go on the day of the event. This year, the send-off for the event will be held in the Rogalski Center Ballroom.

Students who participate will receive a free, long-sleeved t-shirt and lunch after the event. Students can register for the event Oct. 30 and 31, and Nov. 6 and 7, in the Beehive, or online.

Alumni can register to participate, too, and will be spread out in different groups for the day. Afterward, alumni can join the SAU Alumni Association Board and Alumni Engagement team for refreshments in the BeeHive.

In addition, alumni in Des Moines and Phoenix will host Bee the Difference Day events in their communities, too. For more information or to register for the Des Moines event, click here
