Thankfully times and attitudes have changed. Students on all of our campuses and public schools share their time by volunteering. Volunteering can have a big impact for students:
- Experience for a future job
- Time to spend with friends
- An opportunity to learn about Columbia
- A chance to see the world in a different perspective
I am so thankful for the work students do for us as volunteers and can't wait to meet the new batch. In addition to the great young people at MU I met today, I had a chance to visit with nearly 300 freshman at Stephens College on Friday and Debra Hardin in our office will be at Hickman tomorrow.
