Students who wish to attend a university that embodies Christian values and offers opportunities to participate in volunteer work may want to consider enrolling at Campbell University in North Carolina. According to the school, a student who promotes involvement in service learning initiatives has a blog that was so popular, it was featured on the Facebook page of Campus Compact, a national service organization.
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service, Sara Acosta focused on the life of the man behind the history. Her blog, which is called Service Learning @ Campbell, also promotes projects at the school. For example, for MLK Day, the college hosted projects such as a blood drive, park cleanup, nursing home visits and a science fair buddy program for the Baptist Fellowship of Angier, among others, according to Acosta.
She is also an AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America member.
Students who wish to launch careers in the nonprofit sector may benefit from enrolling in a degree program, as those who have completed higher levels of education often have better job opportunities. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that professionals who work in this industry can earn an average of $600 per week.
