NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Student-athletes from Southern Connecticut State University began academic work with students at the Clinton Avenue School in New Haven on Wednesday. Members of the women’s basketball, women’s cross country and baseball teams took part in the session, which featured small group reading sessions.
This program is just one example of many community outreach events that SCSU student-athletes will take part in during the 2014-15 academic year as part of the Tim Greer Insurance Agency Community Service Cup.
Initiated in September, 2008, the ‘Community Service Cup’ program provides a competitive format that allows student-athletes to gain an enriched experience through engagement with the on-campus and local communities by supporting ventures of traditional citizens, campus community members and peer students and student-athletes. SCSU student-athletes volunteered nearly 4,000 hours of their time to numerous outreach efforts, both on-campus and in Greater New Haven, during the 2013-14 academic year.
