Each semester, the University Scholars Program plans 2-3 service activties open to all University Scholars.  Sign-up is typically first come, first served.  This is a great way to give back to your community while at the same time building community with your fellow Scholars.  Please note that these events do not count for Scholars Forum credit unless otherwise stated, and are not restricted to University Scholars enrolled in Scholars Forum. Contact Chester Brewer (ckbrewe2@ncsu.edu) for information on upcoming service activities or to suggest future service opportunities.
