FLEX & New Student Community Engagement Day (Student Sign-Ups ONLY)

Saturday, August 25th, 2018 from 7:30am to 2:00pm (PT)


Dear Students,

On behalf of the Office of Civic & Community Engagement, welcome to the University of La Verne! We are thrilled to have you join the Leo Family!  We are excited to introduce you to your FIRST ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE of the year! This day is dedicated to introducing you to the University's four core values: Civic & Community Engagement, Diversity & Inclusivity, Ethical Reasoning, and Lifelong Learning. On this day, all incoming first-year, transfer & first-year law school students will have the opportunity to engage with their fellow peers & FLEX faculty in a service project with one of our partnering community-based organizations.  From painting murals to feeding the homeless, or participating in planting & harvesting food at a local community garden, you will be exposed to an array of experiences! This is what the LA VERNE EXPERIENCE is all about!

Please note the deadline to sign up online is SATURDAY, AUGUST 18, 2018, but we welcome walk-ins the day of the event.  However, we highly encourage you to sign up online so we can account for your t-shirt and meal.  

Once you have registered, the Office of Civic & Community Engagement will take care of assigning you a community service site & leader(s).  First-year students will be grouped with their specific FLEX community & transfer students & law students will be designated a group as well.  A FLEX faculty or staff leader, as well as an Orientation Week Leader (OWL), will lead you on this day.  We will also take care of transportation and your meal! 

Frequently Asked Questions:

What do I bring?

1. Shoes

Bring comfortable, closed-toe shoes. Depending on your service site, you may be working indoors or outdoors.

2. Pants

Make sure to wear comfortable bottoms, preferably pants or long shorts. 

3. Skin Protection

With it being summer, you'll want to bring a hat & a pair of sunglasses, but most importantly, please make sure to put on sunscreen.

4. Water Bottle

Although we will include a water bottle as part of your lunch, we recommend you bring a reusable water bottle for the day. Staying hydrated is key!

5. Phone/Camera

This is a day of service, community engagement, and fun; so don't forget to capture the moment! You may bring your smart phone and/or camera!

6. Small/Light Bag

Bring something light, such as a drawstring backpack, to carry your personal belongings.
