2020 Oregiver’s Service Event

August 6, 2020

Hi Golden Community,

Mines is now taking projects for the Oregiver’s Service Event! The service event is a student-conceived and student-driven day of service for the City of Golden. The community of Golden has played a massive role in the development of the Colorado School of Mines and has helped to support its students develop into professionals in the fields of engineering and applied science. We are currently accepting projects for this year’s service event until August 10th!

A positive to come out of social distancing guidelines, which we will adhere to, is the event will take place all throughout the fall semester. That means you can have large or multiple projects that can be completed over several days. If you have a project in mind, please sign up using this link and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
