The Volunteer Office
seeks to provide
opportunities for students to gain practical experiences as they give back
to the communities which, in part, support their education. Operated under
the concept of “Service Learning,” students are given hands-on
experiences in many different settings. Among the many opportunities available
are: Habitat for Humanity, tutoring of area students, Christmas on Campus (supporting
families celebrating holidays) and Paws for People (bringing pets into retirement
Students may choose to extend their involvement
in this area by becoming a student site coordinator. In this role,
students recruit new students and have on-going contact with professionals
in the field as they work to fill the volunteer needs in the community.
Educational advancement is also available through Alternative
Spring Break programs, Ohio Campus Compact, the Governor’s
Community Service Councils and Americorps.
