If heat flows into the surroundings (i.e., when a reaction is exothermic) the random motions of the molecules in the surroundings increase. Thus, the entropy of the surroundings increases. The second law of thermodynamics states that the total entropy of the universe always increases for a spontaneous process

Dear student 
In most cases, the surroundings will be at a constant temperature. Therefore the entropy change will simply be related to the amount of energy that enters the surroundings in the form of heat divided by the temperature of the surroundings.
Hpe this helps 
Good Luck
