Why community service is important • Community service is great for everyone. It gives you the chance to do something that will benefit someone else and most of the time it benefits more than just one person. It allows you to give back to the community, and to help the underprivileged.
My Experience • Throughout my adolescence I have always been involved with community service. Whether through opportunities with my school or church I have always been able to give back to the community through my service. • The service I have done through my sorority, Phi Mu has both enhanced my experience and my relationships with other sisters.
.PHI MU. • Phi Mu is more than a sorority to me. It is my family here in Valdosta and has been a window of opportunity. Being a Phi Mu has opened the door to the community and laid the foundation for many future connections.
Give Back • Everyone should be required to give back to the community. • It is a great thing and has shown me that helping people not only helps them but helps you to be a better person.
The End! Have a great summer! Woohoo!!!
