Service Opportunities


Volunteering: Developing the knowledge, skills, and values for civic and career readiness!

The Office of Student Life, in partnership with student organizations across campus, provides opportunities for students to engage in their local communities. Through mutually beneficial volunteer projects, students are immersed in impactful direct service with members of the surrounding community.

Volunteering is a two way street, we are serving and learning simultaneously. Through volunteer projects not only are we able to address an immediate community need, but we are able to learn about important social issues, how they effect those around us, and how we can more deeply work toward long-term change.

Community Organizer, Alternative Breaks

He is also a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. Jalen has gone on Alternative Spring Break (ASB) twice during his time here and the experiences were incredibly educational and impactful to him. They have truly changed his outlook on service learning and wants so badly to share these experiences with others.
