Service is  an essential part of the educational process and it's one of Augie's core values. Research shows that community service has a variety of positive effects on college students, including:
  • enhanced civic responsibility,
  • increased academic development,
  • better GPAs,
  • heightened aspirations for advanced degrees,
  • greater contact with faculty members,
  • increased social self-confidence,
  • and enhanced leadership ability.

We volunteer for many different reasons. 

  • to make a difference in the world,
  • to explore career possibilities,
  • to share skills with others,
  • to develop new job skills, for fun, etc.
  • What's your reason?

 How can I get involved?
