Looking for Classes for Spring 2017? Consider enrolling in a Service-Learning Course!

December 6, 2016 at 1:21 pm

Service-learning offers experiences outside the classroom that will help you to be a well-rounded, socially-minded individual. Here is just one example of a service-learning class offered this Spring:

ENGL 102-37 TR 12:15-1:30

ENGL 102-39 TR 1:40-2:55

Why enroll in this English 102 class? Because your work will actually be published by a nonprofit and circulated among real, actual readers. You will have the opportunity to make a difference in your community with YOUR writing and you can get a jump start on your resume building!

Check out these questions to see if service-learning is a good fit for you!

Do you like to learn through hands on experiences? Would you like to take a class that connects you to the community? Would you like to make a difference?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider registering for a service-learning class for Spring 2017. Service-learning classes take the traditional academic coursework and connect the concepts to a community partner to address a need.

Why should you consider a service-learning class? Students who take service-learning classes tend to do better academically and have stronger resumes and experiences when applying for employment. Service-learning classes also provide for opportunities to make a lasting difference in the community.
