Performing community service as a student organization isn’t recommended for no reason: it’s an enriching learning experience, a team building experience, and a growing experience. Not only does it benefit the greater community, however, it benefits the student community as well as your organization in many ways.
There’s really no excuse for not doing community service, especially when there are so many opportunities in the area. The community service group along with the civic engagement offer so many options. Below are just a few, here is a master list.
