Donaghy Day - Fall
Thanks to Wabash Valley community partners and the 1,265 students who engaged in 2019 Fall Donaghy Day.
At Indiana State University we pride ourselves in providing opportunities for experiential learning and public service.
Donaghy Day is a day of service set aside for the community to celebrate the season and to work to help beautify the campus and surrounding community.
Students have the opportunity to give back to ISU and the Terre Haute community by working on various projects at various sites.
The University's Center for Community Engagement partners with over thirty non-profit organizations within Terre Haute to create this day of service.
About Donaghy Day
Named after Fred Donaghy, graduate of the Normal School (1912) and a professor of life sciences, Donaghy Day was initiated in 1976 as a day set aside for the community to celebrate the season and to work to help beautify the campus and surrounding community.
Donaghy Day is a great way for students to give back to the community. In prior years, projects ranged from making cards for hospice patients at Southern Care of Terre Haute to helping customers unload recycling at ISU's Recycling Center.
Donaghy Day is an event that not only helps students learn about community and public service, but also creates an opportunity for them to connect with other students and share in this experience together.
Donaghy Day is part of Fall Welcome, which is a four-day transition program that begins before the new school year to help new ISU students with their transition to college.
