SERVE, MAKE A DIFFERENCE, GET INVOLVED
Alma students participate in community-oriented projects each year, serving others while they learn!
While some students 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.
