Updates from the Illustrious SERV Board

Happy October from the SERV board! First, some good news – thanks to your votes, we have elected our two new general members from the first year class: Maddy Fort and Shrinidhi Thirumalai! We are super excited to have them join our team.

Now that the semester is well underway, we are looking for larger impact service projects that we can do over the course of the next few months. As always, if you have any ideas, let us know and we’ll see what we can figure out!

Here’s what we’ve been up to and what’s on the horizon as we enter the fall season:

9/29 – Race for the Cure 5k. Continuing the Olin tradition, we had an awesome team of 19 students sign up to walk or run the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure this year.

10/4 – Kickball tournament! Our semi-annual kickball tournament for Kick-It, an organization working towards a cure for children’s cancer, will be happening soon. Grab your friends and form a team! Registration is $20 per team, 10 people per team. We are also looking for referees.

SERV T-shirts! We have a new t-shirt design this year (think giraffes!), and they are on sale. If you would like to order one, send an e-mail to serv@olin.edu with your preferred size.

We are also going to start tabling during lunch again, so stop by on your way through the dining hall to say hi and see what we’re up to!

As always, SERV is here for you, and we are always open to your exciting new ideas! E-mail us at serv@olin.edu, join the CarpeSERV mailing list for updates about spontaneous community service opportunities, and follow us on Twitter @olinserv to get the latest update on upcoming events.
