Community Engagement Scholars Program
Even before the speaker came in to our class to talk about the Community Engagement Scholars program I had already been interested in it, but now I for sure want to go for it. I just think it would be an amazing experience and really be one of the more worthwhile and beneficial learning oppurtunities I get in college. It's incredible how much stuff you can learn out of the classroom just by being out in the community and exposing yourself to new situations/people. I know 400 hours of undergrad sounds like a lot but I figure if I just keep volunteering weekly it shouldn't be that hard to do. I'm also really interesting in doing some service learning abroad (maybe in South Africa or Ghana?) which would help cover a lot of my hours. Anyways, I signed up for an informational meeting so I'll have to see how that goes.
