Viva Volunteer is UT Dallas' annual service event. Hundreds of students, staff and faculty unite in service in order to serve others on Make a Difference Day. In one morning, Comets travel to local nonprofits and serve in the spirit of making a difference in their community. Transportation to and from project sites will be provided to all registrants, as well as breakfast, lunch, and t-shirts.
