Volunteer Activities

Beach Clean-up


While developing their career and academic needs, the students also commit to improving the local community. This Beach Clean-up event allowed the students to bond with their mentors, while discarding trash and making a real impact.


Leadership Brunch


To prepare for the upcoming semester, the students held a Leadership Brunch at the Cheesecake factory. This session allowed them to organize roles and divide responsibilities, while brainstorming new ideas to expand the club.
