NEW STUDENT SERVICE DAY MISSION
New Student Service Day (NSSD) invites DePaul's Discover Chicago students to come together with the communities of Chicago for a day of service and reflection. After a week of exploring the city, this is an exciting opportunity for students to give back and bring closure to the Immersion Week by taking part in service projects across the city. For the newest members of the DePaul community, the day is structured as an invitation to strengthen our connection to one another and put our Vincentian mission and values into practice. Join the 1,100 students and 45 community partners who participated last year in making a difference!
