Like so many other activitities and events over the past 10 months, the covid pandemic has affected volunteer opportunities at the National Day of Service on Monday, the national holiday on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Colleges and universities in the region that might have volunteer opportunities for students and staff on National Day of Service are not in session. Univerities starting later month or February are holding their volunteer initiatives next month.
At Seton Hill University, the start of the spring semester has been pushed back until Feb. 2. The university typically delays its National Day of Service because of is semester schedule, said Jennifer Reeger, Seton Hill spokeswoman.
The university will hold on-campus events in late February, in which students will have a variety of opportunities to volunteer their servies, Reeger said.
With the start of Saint Vincent College’s second semester pushed back to Feb. 8,ghe college will not be sponsoring any student service activities on Monday. But, the college will commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. upon the return of students to campus with events during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Feb. 8 to 13, said Jim Berger, college spokesman.
The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg will not have any student activities on Monday because students have been asked to remain at home for the beginning of classes, said Susan
