“It was a great hands-on learning experience. I was able to take my knowledge from my course and apply it to my task.”

“I think service learning is a great idea and more people should do it. It provides valuable experience that goes beyond the classroom. What you take from the experience will stay with you for life.”

“Involving my students in Service Learning gives me more opportunity to be aware of what is going on in the community, what the communities’ needs are, and what possibilities exist for tying course content to the real world.”

“Providing opportunities for Service Learning in my classes benefits the students in terms of real-life knowledge gained. It also provides an opportunity for students to get to know more about themselves, which is something thatyou simply can’t learn from a book.”
