Giving through service to ESU and the community
Our Hornets are changing the community through community service hours. In fact, most of our students participate in community service hours. One example is our student-athletes, who donated nearly 4,800 hours of community service to rank ninth in the nation among NCAA Division II schools in 2019-20.
