Discover Cleveland- August 16-19, 2015
"Discover Cleveland" is a program that provides an opportunity for new students to learn more about community service, Cleveland, and OCO's community partners. BW is just 20 minutes from Cleveland, a city with a lot to offer. What better way for our students to get to know their new community than through a service immersion experience? The program occurs before the start of classes and BW's Weekend of Welcome.
Students live together at the Archwood House during this urban summer service program. Through direct service and community events, students are able to explore social justice issues, develop a direct relationship with individuals in Brooklyn Centre and the greater Cleveland community, and gain an understanding of non-profit work.
Service Fair- September 12, 2015 (10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.)
Formerly, known as the "OCO Expo" this event is an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to learn about service opportunities offered by OCO and other organizations simply by stopping by the Union lobby and visiting informational tables.
Too busy to serve during the week or make a big time commitment? Super Saturdays could be perfect for you? Super Saturdays are one-time projects offered twice per semester, typically on Saturday morning. Register online for one or more!
The Urban Semester Program is an academic and living-learning experience. Students live at the BW Archwood House, a BW owned facility in Cleveland's Brooklyn Centre neighborhood, where they take classes on-site, participate in a community-based internship and experience life in an urban environment. The next program will be offered Spring 2016.
W.O.W.S.E. gives incoming first-year students a chance to begin their college career with service to the community as part of Weekend of Welcome.
