Panther Community Plunge
The Panther Community Plunge is Civic Engagement’s first large scale day of service of the academic year that introduces first year and returning students at Georgia State University to the numerous social issues faced by Atlanta communities. During Panther Welcome Week, student volunteers and staff leaders participate in service projects dealing with a variety of issues from the environment to homelessness.
Civic Engagement looks forward to having students join the next Panther Community Plunge in early fall semester of 2017. The downtown and greater Atlanta area projects for the fall of 2016 included:
- Atlanta Fulton Public Library
- Big Bethel AME Church
- Park Pride
- SafeHouse Outreach
- Oakland Cemetery
- City Council Member Kwanza Hall’s office
- Apex Museum
- Atlanta Downtown Neighborhood Association

All volunteers should wear comfortable clothes they do not mind getting dirty and closed toed shoes. Volunteers are encouraged to bring water bottles and snacks for later in the day as well as sunscreen and bug spray for those participating in outdoor projects.
