On Thursday, October 4, Brookdale’s Scroll & Pen Bookstore is joining hundreds of other college stores across North America to celebrate and promote social responsibility during the second annual National Student Day.
National Student Day, sponsored by the National Association of College Stores, is a day dedicated to celebrating and promoting students’ social responsibility.
"We’re taking part in National Student Day because we see our students committing selfless acts every day," said Marguerite Stocker, Director of the Scroll & Pen at Brookdale. "From volunteering at the local soup kitchens to participating in the Friday of Service program, our students continue to improve the campus community and beyond. We are proud of our students and are glad to have an opportunity of recognizing them."
The Scroll & Pen Bookstore has a whole day of activities planned including a Hot Dog Eating Contest, Wheel of Prizes, food and drinks, and entertainment.
Students playing the Wheel of Prizes can win prizes by sharing their stories of social responsibility. (Students submit online their tale of how they give back to their community; stories are then voted on by other students across North America.) The ten most popular stories will win awards of $3000, $2000, and $1000 scholarships; in addition, seven iPads will be awarded.
