Service Council was an incredible eye-opener for me. I have been civically engaged throughout the entire year, while being actively involved in my education. I took 19 credit hours this semester and did over 100 hours of community service. I feel like my perspectives on humanitarianism, politics, economy, and environment have all changed and grown. This is solely because of my experience with Service Council. This was one of the best years of my life. I have changed so much. (Anonymous student on final evaluation)

Before going to Best Friends [Animal Sanctuary], I didnt know how one voice can help make a difference. After spending time there, I now know that my voice can help. (Linda Peck) 72% of community partners surveyed say student volunteers furthered the mission of their organization.
