We hope you will participate in Community Day!

Community Day is a great opportunity to live out our Benedictine Values - #SaintsInAction! A CSS tradition since 1999, Community Day happens once in the fall, and again in the spring, when the CSS community is encouraged to participate in a day of service in our community. Students, staff, and faculty go out in groups to make a difference in the lives of others. About 1,000 students, staff, and faculty typically participate in Community Day each semester.
