Service is … Relationships

What is service at Princeton? Is it helping someone else? Is it standing up for what's right? Is it giving back? Yes and much more! Our new "Service is ..." video series aims to share the broad definition and impact of service and civic engagement at Princeton University and beyond. 

In this video, Co-founder of the Princeton Clay Project Chiara Ficarelli '19 shares how, for her, service is a two-way interaction that is built upon relationships. 

To support the Clay Project, join them at two upcoming events:

Say Welcome to Refugees
April 6, 2-4 PM and 8-10 PM, Frist Campus Center, 100 Level Tables
The Princeton Clay Project and Princeton Advocates for Justice are joining Project Welcome along with 60 other colleges and universities around the U.S. Join the project by writing messages on our Princeton's quilt. This is an art-advocacy effort to channel the stories and welcoming messages of college students into a visual representation that the U.S. remains a country for migrants, immigrants and refugees. All the banners from various schools will be sewn together to create a giant welcome banner, which is estimated to be filled with over 10,000 messages of welcome and stories of migration. This mega-banner will be a work of travelling art at international airports across the USA. Learn more.
