发现社区 & 了解

Working on service projects with other students in the 荣誉项目 helped me gain an understanding of what it means to better the lives of those within our Chatham community 以及大匹兹堡社区. The volunteering experiences I joined because of the 荣誉项目 开阔了我的视野 on how I can serve people in my communities throughout the course of my undergraduate studies, and my time volunteering has also granted me the insight to envision how I might help people in my future career as well.——佩兰·南丁格尔,23岁
