How can students give back while in college?
Just like they did in high school (or should have) by performing community service in any number of a vast array of situations – tutoring, working w/the homeless, working w/those who are mentally or physically disadvantaged, being a foster grandchild at nursing homes, delivering or packaging meals for the hungry, etc., etc., etc.
Students who thrive on giving back will have numerous opportunities to do so during their college years. This applies to students in all venues, from urban to rural. It’s no wonder that so many colleges look at applicants’ community service activities and ask essay questions related to such projects.
Most colleges have quite a variety of activities for students. There are many formal programs where college students help out in community redevelopment, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, healthcare and other initiatives. It is a win-win for the college, the student and the community! Students who are studying medicine, education or language will be able to apply their classroom learning to an actual situation. Chances are any college would welcome new student-led initiatives.
