Students participating in Month of Action actvities

SUNY Oswego recently launched its Month of Action, a student-run initiative with the goal of raising awareness and improving student life on campus and throughout the community.

The Month of Action started Feb. 16 and will run through March 15. Throughout the month, the variety of scheduled events range from Literacy Volunteers training to an environmentally conscious film screening, organizers said.

Among the activities scheduled are “Discover College through Service,” a community service project with local migrant youth on March 1, and the annual awareness-raising Hunger Banquet on March 12. 

For the length of the Month of Action, donations will be accepted for the Adopt-a-Platoon and Cell Phones for Soldiers program, which collects necessary items to be sent to troops abroad.

For a full schedule of Month of Action events and more information on how to get involved, call 312-5360, e-mail or visit

Over the past year, SUNY Oswego students provided over 17,500 hours of service to the community through programs such as Mentor Oswego, Special Olympics and Adopt-a-Grandparent.
