SERVE, MAKE A DIFFERENCE, GET INVOLVED
Alma students participate in community-oriented projects each year, serving others while they learn!
While some engage in academic service learning, which combines meaningful community service opportunities with selected courses, others participate in Alternative Breaks, Greek philanthropies, service-oriented clubs and groups and community service work-study opportunities.
Each term, the college offers academic service learning courses that will allow you to apply your classroom learning to a real-life situation in the community. By applying your new knowledge through service with others, you will learn the material more quickly while reflecting on the service and it will stay with you longer. And it’s more fun!
More opportunities for service, volunteerism and civic engagement:
- Volunteer through student organizations and with community partners,
- Off-campus work-study positions with non-profit organizations,
- The Service House, a small housing option focused on community service, and
- Alpha Phi Omega, Omicron Tau chapter, a co-ed service fraternity.

The Charity Ball for Relay for Life
AC Hepcats with the help of AC Martial Arts Club would like to present “The Charity Ball,” a night to dance and be merry with your friends while raising money for a good cause. The charge to enter is $3 for singles and $5 for two people. All money raised goes to Relay for Life. The Charity Ball is formal attire so feel free to come looking as dashing as possible, although formal attire is not strictly required. There will be snacks and refreshments, as well as fun memories and a reason to put on your top hat.
Also, for those of you who have never swing danced before, there will be Hepcats there the whole night ready to teach you how. If you want to come and just dance like you are in the 21st century, by all means, we would love to have you. This is a social dance, so no partner is necessary!
