This is an ideal time to explore your values and the world around you. OSU provides countless civic engagement opportunities to discover where your passions meet the world’s needs. Through advocacy, activism, philanthropy, experiential learning, and service, you can make an impact in the ways that matter to you most — while also enhancing your well-being and leadership skills.
Engaging in service allows you to create change on issues that you are passionate about. It will enhance your sense of self, place, and purpose while also deepening your understanding of complex social issues, building friendships with people from diverse backgrounds, and strengthening your community.
The world is your classroom. You can explore challenges and solutions, build community, and gain firsthand experience and skills by signing up for programs such as Alternative Break or one of the many service projects available throughout the year.
