Georgia State University Cares Day 2019

This year, the Georgia State Alumni Association and Civic Engagement teamed up to send student and alumni volunteers out to various project around Atlanta in the sixth annual Georgia State University Cares Day on April 5-6, 2019. The volunteers were sent out to projects with MedShare, Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Piedmont Park Conservancy, Action Ministries, Trees Atlanta, Gateway Center and the Decatur Community Garden. Participants were also able to volunteer with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity’s Brush with Kindness Program, thanks to a grant given to Civic Engagement from State Farm. The grant also enabled the Civic Engagement office to host another volunteer day with Habitat for Humanity in January on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Make a STATEment, VOTE!

Students, faculty and staff: Register to VOTE!
Georgia State University has made it easy for students, faculty and staff to register to vote. When there is an election in your area, you will be sent a reminder to ensure you never miss another election. TurboVote is an application that makes voting easy. When you sign up, TurboVote keeps track of your elections, local and national. And if you need to get registered, update your voter registration, or request an absentee ballot, we’ll get you all the forms and information you need, when you need them.

TurboVote keeps track of registration and vote-by-mail rules for all 50 states, so you don’t have to.
