We Want U!
Homecoming is a great time to become an active member of the university community and volunteer your time for a greater cause, and the Thank U event is the perfect way to get involved. Don't believe me? Just ask the 400 students, alumni, and others who participated last year!
So how exactly does Thank U work?
Participants meet at Northrop Plaza to go out in teams and work together on different community service projects. There are a variety of projects to participate in - both indoors and outdoors, and some requiring more strenuous work than others. But all in all, these projects are about coming together to build "One community, one U."
Anyone in the community can propose a project, so if you have a project idea that you'd like to see as a part of the Thank U event, submit your proposal to Matt Ramirez at Homecoming@umn.edu. The deadline for submitting a project is coming up quickly, so make sure you get your proposal in as soon as possible.
That's all for now Minnesota! Make sure to visit the Homecoming website often for the latest updates on Thank U and all of the Homecoming 2012 events.
