What Fisher Students Say About Service-Learning
"I was able to communicate with many different people that I have never had the chance to interact with."
"This wasn't just a project to get a grade like in other classes. It was a real-life project that will hopefully have a positive impact."
"It added meaning and awareness to the course and my life. My eyes were opened to a lot of things I have never seen before."
"I found that the issues we discuss in class are real-life issues."
Student Spotlight on Service-Learning
Service learning has taught me that communication is the key to making any organization/group/club/company work efficiently. Throughout my service learning class I had the chance to organize and plan with my on-site connections to ensure all aspects of my project were in order and completed within a specified timeframe, just like in the real world.
The kids I worked with were so eager to get to know me and to let me help them, all the while they were really helping me a lot more than they will ever know.
I hope that service learning courses begin to grow at St. John Fisher.
