Event Postponed as a Result of Flooding
As a result of severe flooding that has impacted East Baton Rouge Parish schools, LSU Campus Life is postponing the event, previously scheduled for this Friday, August 19.
We are allowing time for the leadership of the EBR School system to assess each school, to determine impact and needs, and to identify when each school may reopen. This will allow us to set alternate dates for coordinated service projects at schools across the parish.
As a registered volunteer for Community Bound, you will receive a follow-up email about rescheduled dates with any instructions you will need to follow.
After consulting with EBR Schools, we will distribute information about rescheduled dates via social media and the Campus Life website, www.lsu.edu/campuslife, for any students who wish to register for the first time.
LSU first-year students come together once a year to serve as a group of new Baton Rouge citizens in Baton Rouge area schools.
Please note the postponement! This year’s program was scheduled Friday before school begins (August 19).

About Community Bound
Community Bound is a service plunge program designed especially for first-year LSU students. The program works in close collaboration with the East Baton Rouge school system, Aramark, City Year Baton Rouge, and Volunteers in Public Schools, and provides general fix-up projects, like painting and landscaping. This program is a great way for students to meet friends and classmates and to get involved in their new community.
Community Bound was first hosted by the LSU Honors College, but became a Campus Life program in 2006. The program is designed each summer by a committee of faculty, staff, and student leaders coordinated through Volunteer LSU.
In 2016, Community Bound will be open to all first-year LSU students, including incoming freshmen, new transfer students, and new students to the LSU Graduate School, the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, and the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law School.
Participation is free; transportation and lunch will be included.
Students wishing to participate should register by Friday, August 12.
