Strive to Serve Update:

As of last week, more than 9,000 hours of community service have been documented. As our goal of 11,000 hours for the academic year is fast approaching. We have passed several milestones, including donations of $1,000 to the Heart, Love and Soul Food Pantry in Niagara Falls, as well as $1,000 to Roswell Park Cancer Institute. We continue to encourage all students to carry on Niagara University's Vincentian values by going out and helping the community in any way you can.

Any students who have recently completed any hours are reminded to document them. Forms can be filled out in the NUSGA office and handed to Vice-President Suzanne Curry. You can also visit

Niagara.edu/NUSGA for a list of references to help you with any community service ideas.

Be sure to visit our newly revamped website at Niagara.edu/NUSGA! There you can get to know your representatives, view recent photos and learn how you can get involved in organizations around campus overseen by NUSGA. You can also contact our representatives through the site regarding any questions, comments or concerns.
