Student Comments

If you care to see how your peers feel about Service Learning, read through these excerpts from previous students' Reflection Journals. 

    “When I was told service-learning was part of my class requirement, I asked myself, why should I be told to do this when I am paying so much at college, but I’ll tell you now, it was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life and I will do it again and again.”  Fredrick Kemei

    “At first I thought volunteering was a waste of my valuable time.  When I saw my Supervisor’s bright face and enthusiastic attitude, something inside me asked, ‘Why is she so happy?’ and just as suddenly, I wanted to find out why. While volunteering at Wuestoff Medical Center in Rockledge, I gained knowledge of life.  I learned of compassion, and pain as well as love and respect.  I wouldn’t change the experience for anything.  I felt like I was making a difference.”  Laura Lopez

    “I would definitely recommend S-L to others.  It was a very enriching learning experience where my critical thinking skills were in demand daily and I was able to improve my own social skills while working with the children.  I was able to talk to teachers and parents to gain wonderful ideas for my research paper on how to improve the development of children’s social skills.” Natalie Conwell

“Although I almost resented the initial idea of a volunteer requirement, I decided to make the most of the situation and to keep an open mind.  What I didn’t know then was how much my helping others would also help me.  My volunteering in Cape Canaveral Hospital’s emergency department helped solidify my decision to become a registered nurse and also reminded me of how extremely rewarding it can be to help others when they are in need. I gained valuable insight on various health care careers, and seeing the staff enjoying their jobs made me want to stay motivated in college so I could work with such warm-hearted people.” Evie Stewart
