Step Up 2017-2018 Upcoming Events


Monday, April 23rd: Thanks for Tanks
12-2pm, Keyser Quad
Rain Plan: Combine with Tuesday

Students will receive a limited Step Up tank top in appreciation for writing a thank you note to a member of the Hopkins faculty or staff who have had a substantial impact on their experience at Hopkins.  These thank you messages will then be passed along directly to these staff/faculty members. 

Tuesday, April 24th: Totes for Tots
1pm – 3 PM, The Beach 
Rain Location: Levering Cafe

In partnership with the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center (JHCC), this event will celebrate the many hours of community service contributed by our student body on campus, in the Baltimore community, and around the world. The Totes for Tots service project will invite students to participate in a service initiative to create 150 family centered comfort bags and 100 teen centered comfort bags for patients and their families at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.  These 250 kits are enough to supply the JHCC for a full year.  As a celebration of their participation in service to Hopkins, students who make a kit will receive a locally made treat from Taharka Brothers (who is even making a special blue Hopkins flavor just for this event).

This event is sponsored in part by the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association.

Wednesday, April 25th: Senior Class Gift Event
10am – 1pm, The Breezeway

Senior Class Gift is in charge of Step Up for Wednesday and will be having students come tie ribbons to campus as a physical representation of their ties to Hopkins. Students will also enjoy lemonade and iced tea on what will hopefully be a beautiful day!
