Eighty-five percent of Alma College students participate in service activities each year. While some of them engage in service learning, which combines meaningful community service opportunities with selected courses, others participate in Alternative Breaks, Greek philanthropies, and service-oriented clubs and groups.
Each term, the college offers a schedule of available 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 to others, you will learn the material more quickly and it will stay with you longer. And it’s more fun!
Other programs available to students interested in service, volunteerism and civic engagement include:
Connect with other Alma College students, faculty and staff interested in service learning on the AC Service Learning Facebook page. For information about current service learning courses and other volunteer opportunities, contact Anne Ritz.
