2018 Service Fair Offers Opportunities

On Friday morning, Sept. 28 the Service office held their third annual Service Fair. 
30 organizations set up booths on the terrace to provide volunteer opportunities to our students. In addition, campus service clubs were added to the set up on the terrace during lunch to promote additional opportunities. Students engaged in conversation with the organizations’ representatives, and some were pleased to note that the organizations were located throughout San Diego county, offering service opportunities more easily accessible from their home communities.
