I want to get involved with service at UD, but I’m pretty busy with classes. What can I do?
You can do anything you want! You can join an Registered Student Organization (RSO), find volunteer opportunities through Career Services, or check out weekly service opportunities in your residence hall. Visit these links to start serving today.
I am already involved in some service either at home, or at UD. I’m looking to get more involved in service while in college.
There are lots of ways to expand your service experience at UD. You can fulfill your Discovery Learning Experience (DLE) course requirement, do a summer internship, participate in an alternative break trip, or more.
Focus on Service
I love doing service for and in my community. I would really like to spend a lot of my time doing service!
So you’re interested in service 24/7? So are we! Whether you’re ready for service abroad, a major in a public service field, or you want to be a Community Engagement Scholar, we have it at UD!
How do I fund my experiences?
