Community Service Honor Roll
Georgia Southern’s commitment and dedication to public service from its students, faculty and staff has led to the University being named in the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll from the Corporation for National and Community Service.
During the 2011-2012 academic year, more than 3,900 students engaged in nearly 369,000 hours (more than 15,000 days) of community service. Some of these projects included students working with non-profit agencies in the community to coordinate volunteers and special events; “The Empty Bowl” project, which raises money for the Statesboro Food Bank; and the annual alternative Spring Break trip to the Bahamas which involved students performing building renovations at the Freeport YMCA and distributing meals through the Bahamas Red Cross.
