It’s that time of year again! The Honors Program is hosting the second annual Days of Service and learning, this month. This year, we have worked with organizations in our community to come up with a number of volunteer activities to support your commitment to service as an Honors student. Participating in one or more of these events will allow students to get started on their service work for the year as well as gain valuable knowledge and experience through working with our community.
