Beth Auger Day of Service - Two sessions to choose from
Morning 8:30 am– 12:00 pm or Afternoon 1:00 - 4:30 pm
Various locations on-campus, lunch is provided

Dr. Beth Auger was a beloved professor of biology at Saint Joseph’s. Upon her passing in 2017, the College renamed its annual day of service in her honor. This year, the Beth Auger Day of Service will coincide with homecoming to try and include any alumni who would like to join students, faculty, and staff on this day of service. We invite to participate in one of three ways: (1) share a memory of Dr. Auger either in writing or video; (2) take part in the Beth Auger Day of Service while you are visiting the campus for homecoming; and/or (3) commit to some service in your local community on either October 6 or during the following weekend.
