Change Day

What is Change Day?

September 24, 2019, is Andrews University's third annual campus-wide Change Day. Change Day is our way of giving back to the community through acts of service. Our mission at Andrews University is to Seek Knowledge, Affirm Faith and Change the World. What better place to start change than at home?

How do I get involved?

Meet us at the flag mall at 8:15a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 24. Choose where you will serve by signing up for a site below. We have a variety of activities including painting, yard work, cleaning, demolishing, pressure washing and much more! Both breakfast and lunch will be provided. Travel will consist of carpooling and AU transportation. 

What should I wear? 

All volunteers should come ready to serve their community in clothes they do not mind getting dirty. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are preferred and encouraged. Change Day 2019 T-shirts will be provided!
