Sample FYSOP Schedule
This is a sample FYSOP schedule. There are elements that could change, but the Monday move-in date and time are set.
FYSOP registration will begin at the George Sherman Union (775 Commonwealth Ave.) at noon. First-year students move into their permanent residences after 4:00pm. After getting settled, students will meet their staff leaders and attend opening ceremonies later that evening.
Students break up into their respective groups and spend the day learning about the various aspects of their focus areas. At night, the coordinators and staff will run a variety of social events to help the volunteers get to know each other and Boston.
Students venture into the city of Boston for their first full day of service. That night all volunteers will come together for program night, an informational and educational presentation with a guest speaker.
Students go back into the city for another full day of service. At night, the coordinators and staff will run a variety of social events to help the volunteers get to know each other and Boston.
Students attend their final day on site. At the end of the day, the volunteers will attend closing ceremonies to wrap-up a wonderful week of community service.
