Lines of students wait to enter the Hogan Campus Center Ballroom for Student Programs for Urban Development (SPUD) information night. SPUD is the largest student organization on campus, involving approximately 600 student volunteers who answer the Holy Cross call to be “men and women for and with others” in the surrounding Worcester community.
Students had the opportunity to browse and speak with representatives from more than 40 public service programs. From serving meals and working at food pantries, to tutoring children and visiting elders in nursing facilities, students build relationships with those in the local communities.
