Service D.A.W.G.S. Day is a day dedicated to serving alongside our communities. On this day, MSU students, faculty, and staff and the surrounding community come together to engage in a few hours of volunteering to impact our community. This year, Service D.A.W.G.S. Day is on Saturday, August 20th, 2022. We will have music and activities beginning at 9 am. We also encourage you to pick up your t-shirt at this time! Volunteering will begin at 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and begins at the community agency of YOUR choosing via slots listed under the Cowbell Connect 'SERVICE' tab after logging in via myState.
Non MSU affiliated Community Volunteers must pre-register ONLINE and create an account with a personal email and password to sign up!
At 10 a.m., ALL volunteers will head directly to the community agency you have registered for. Upon arrival, volunteers are instructed to find your site leader. This site leader will direct volunteers through service projects for the day! The SLCE - Maroon Volunteer Center, along with other MSU student organizations, will host an information table on the back patio of Barnes & Noble located on MSU's campus FOR ANY DAY OF REGISTRATIONS!! Attendees are directed to come to this location ONLY for the following reasons:
ANY DAY OF REGISTRATION
Collect your t-shirt!
If you have questions about how to get to your site or need directions
If you would like to have a snack or drink provided to you
If you have concerns and/or questions
To pick up an $8 meal voucher AFTER service
Around noon or once volunteers have completed service for the day, we are offering optional meal tickets for pick up at the back patio of Barnes & Noble at the information table.
Site leaders are undergraduate and graduate students, who are peer leaders that have chosen to activate their leadership skills by directing various service projects, taking on the role as an influencer with volunteers for the day!

ONLY Site Leaders MUST check-in on Saturday morning, August 20th, 2022 from 8:30am-9am at the Barnes & Noble back patio to collect their Site Leader instruction packet. Site Leaders will meet all volunteers at their non-profit site to give instructions. Site Leaders will officially check all volunteers in for the event. If you are a MSU student, faculty, or staff member, please do not forget your MSU ID. If you are not with MSU, bring any form of photo ID. On Saturday, August 20th, 2022, all volunteers are expected to be at their community service locations by 10 am.
