There are plenty of student organizations here on San Diego State University’s campus, many of which are free and absolutely interesting. The Good Neighbor Program here at SDSU meets once a week at 4 pm every Thursday at the Aztec Mesa portables. This program has various volunteering opportunities that can enhance a student’s experience here on campus. Upcoming events consist of community clean up’s, canvassing and assisting community parades. The canvassing that occurs is mainly focusing on the well being of the community and informing neighbors about rules and regulations applied to being a good neighbor. While participating in this event students will receive community service hours and more volunteer opportunities.
The great thing about these volunteer events is that students do not have to be a part of the Good Neighbor Program to participate. Students are more than welcome to come and join this program and make a difference in the community. The next event this program will be participating in is the Boulevard Boo Parade and Carnival. This event takes place on October 27th 2012, the parade will start at 10 a.m. on El Cajon Blvd. at College Ave. and the Carnival will start from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Clay Park Art St. At this event, non-perishable food and money donations accepted at the Associated Students carnival booth for Aztecs Rock Hunger Food Drive. This program is affiliated with San Diego State’s Associated Students. The Good Neighbor Program is a great way for students to get involved with SDSU and also the community, if there is any questions regarding the program or events please email the Good Neighbor Program Chair Bree Lutjens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
