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, landscaping, and building reading nooks to approximately 25 primary and secondary schools. This program is a great way for first-time students to meet friends and classmates, to learn more about Baton Rouge, 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.
Community Bound is free and open to all new LSU students, including incoming freshmen, new transfer students, and new students participating in the BRCC Bridge Program. Transportation and lunch will be included.
Students wishing to participate should register by August 15.
