Ball State students are a bright, talented bunch. But they’re also generous. Most of them believe that their talent and energy comes with an obligation to give something back to the community. That’s why so many students—no matter how busy they are with their studies—find time for service projects. From giving blood to being a role model to kids at the local community center, there are plenty of opportunities to lend a hand.

You can also do good while you make friends. There are many service organizations on campus that get involved with everything from national organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Easter Seals to local service projects such as Campus Lost and Found and Adopt-A-Highway. You can also go on an Alternative Break, a short-term, intensive service experience; or join the more than 2,000 students each year who get involved with Student Voluntary Services to engage in community service on the local level.
