Civic Action Update: Homecoming, Dilley Carnival & More

MCCE Civic Action Update | Sept. 21, 2023

It sure is starting to feel like fall on campus today! As you pull out your sweaters and scarves, now would be a good time to make a plan for staying social and engaged even as the weather changes. We, of course, recommend finding a volunteering routine so you can continue to learn about our community and feel the surge of endorphins from a job well done. 

A few new ways to get involved, through service or contributing your perspective on university concerns, can be found below.

On Campus

  • Oct. 5: NWCCU evaluators will be on campus evaluating how well we deliver on our university mission. This forum is dedicated to student feedback and pizza lunch will be served. More
  • Oct. 9: Conversations about Community – Student Well Being and Retention, conversation with President Coyle. More
  • Oct. 13 -15: Homecoming is almost here and the Alumni Association could use your help! Volunteer and temporary paid Work Study positions are available. More
