Kent State Students Volunteer Efforts Make a DifferencePosted Aug. 13, 2012
A group of students who volunteered this past March for the campus’s Alternative Spring Break program returned to Kent State University at East Liverpool to again offer community service in our city. This project was arranged by the students without any compensation or class credit.
The students spent all day Saturday assisting elderly members of the community with summer cleaning. Students scrubbed walls, swept and tidied up for residents of the Riverview Tower Apartments in downtown East Liverpool.
The students gave willingly of their time for nothing tangible in return. Program Coordinator Rachael Esterly was very proud of the student volunteers and was happy to oversee the project. “It is so exciting to see such talented and driven students give back to our community on their own accord,” Esterly said. “Their altruistic attitude is contagious and they brightened the day of each person they
met and helped.”Kent State continues to promote and support student participation in community service, demonstrating Excellence in Action reaches far beyond the classroom.
At the Kent State Columbiana County campuses, students can earn a degree in
25 different disciplines. The Kent State Columbiana County campuses, which include Kent State East Liverpool and Kent State Salem, are home to more than 3,500 students. Registration for Fall classes is currently underway. Classes begin August 27.
