Meaningful service to others is a key part of being a student at OSU. For many students, volunteering to serve others is one of the most rewarding things they do. The experience of being a volunteer can help define who you want to be as an individual. Volunteer work can connect you with your community in new ways, encouraging personal growth and empathy. Service can also help you develop professional networks and get a job. Many companies and graduate schools prefer applicants who have spent time as a volunteer. Spending time volunteering on and off-campus sends an important signal that you care about making your community a better place.

Check with your academic advisor if you have any questions related to potential course credit for your volunteer experience.
