What Students are Saying

"In the end, we all should take note: be the one. Be the one that makes the difference in someone else's life and enables him to accomplish things he never thought possible. Both parties benefit and, with this philosophy in mind, we can create an environment in which all people are more satisfied with their lives. I know I definitely feel more proud and satisfied with the person I am. I attribute this to the service work I was involved in this semester. I feel so fortunate to attend a university that has such a wonderful commitment to service and I hope to be part of this effort for the semesters to come."
