Volunteers Needed for Graduation Events

The Student Life department is looking for volunteers for Baccalaureate and/or Commencement. Volunteers do not need to have a ticket, academic attire, or process at the events. Ushers are needed to hand out programs, direct guests to their seats, and help with other miscellaneous tasks.

Baccalaureate will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 17. Commencement will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 18.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Maureen Keyte at maureen.keyte@desales.edu or call ext. 1261.

Tomorrow: Character U Keynote with Kevin Laue

Join Character U on Wednesday, March 27, at 3 p.m. in the Day Union Commons when we welcome back Division I basketball player and motivational speaker Kevin Laue.

Nearly seven-feet-tall with flaming red hair, Kevin Laue commands attention simply by walking on stage. His story, however, never fails to hold that attention for audiences of all ages.

The first player missing a limb to play NCAA Division 1 basketball, he overcame the early death of his father, a challenging home environment, and a legion of critics to become one of the top high school basketball players in his home state of California while earning a scholarship to join the Manhattan College Jaspers.

Come out to hear a DSU favorite. See you Wednesday at 3 p.m.
