Civic Engagement

Day of Service highlights weekend of activism

To honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., dozens of Oglethorpe students and alumni participated in service trips and activism around Atlanta.

Organized by A_LAB Civic Engagement and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., more than 50 students spent their day off on Monday volunteering with Truly Living Well Center for Natural Urban Agriculture and Books For Africa.
