#AllPawsIn: #AllPawsIn: Bearkat All Paws In is the largest volunteer initiative at Sam Houston State University. Hundreds of Bearkats came out on Saturday, March 2, 2013 to put our motto “The measure of a Life is its Service” into practice in and around the Huntsville community. Students spent time volunteering in child daycare centers, parks, along highways, and in service to senior residential facilities. The 2013 event was the first time Bearkat All Paws In extended to the The Woodlands Center campus.
It doesn’t matter where you are, as long as you’re a Bearkat!
