Service & Appreciation Day and Student Senate’s Summer Jam!

From 8:00AM - 6:00PM | June 29, 2017

Live Healthy at Northwestern. Learn Healthy at Northwestern. Now, Let's Serve Healthy at Northwestern!


There’s no better way to kick off summer than at Service & Appreciation Day and Student Senate’s Summer Jam! Join us for a fun-filled and rewarding day as students, staff and faculty. Live-Learn-Serve Healthy!



Our university will come together to volunteer for four hours the morning of June 29th. This is a great opportunity to support our community and the many local non-profits in dire need of landscaping, building, cleaning, care package assembling and much more.

New this year!

You have a full day ahead, so we’ve created a FREE morning event to keep you powered up right through Summer Jam. We’ll serve you some of Chef Marshall’s top recipes – and you’ll learn how to make food work for you. Who doesn’t need mental clarity and more energy for the afternoon Tug-of-war contest!


Chef Marshall regularly appears on Fox Channel 9 in the Twin Cities, as a trusted voice for Smart Nutrition. The Chef Marshall O’Brien Group’s mission is to help people achieve a better quality of life through nutrition. His group is comprised of chefs, dietitians, researchers, and writers who work on wellness strategies and solutions that help all people perform better.


Bonus: Chef Marshall will provide recipes and a take away snack.
