Make a Difference Day

Every October, UNLV hosts a day of service where participants can perform a variety of community outreach activities in multiple sites around UNLV and the Las Vegas Valley. This national day of service is a great opportunity to give back to your community and learn more about issues in our back yard.

Past activities have included activities such as tutoring, painting toys for children, picking up trash, restoring common space at Veterans' Village, painting over graffiti, and cleaning up playgrounds at local schools. We have successfully paired this event with a number of partners and hope to continue to do so in the future. Partners have included UNLV's Fraternity and Sorority Life (for Greek Service Day) and the United Way of Southern Nevada.
