Quotes from Students:
'This experience was the most beneficial assignment I have had so far in my educational experience at USU. It challenged my perspectives about myself and others, and it allowed me to improve my understanding of how simple things can foster a connection between individuals.’ - SW 2400 Student
'I certainly have discovered the importance of strengthening the community through this project. While I learned about research processes, the importance of teamwork, and other technical skills, more importantly I learned to be a concerned member of the community, and to be involved in making changes.' – Honors 3020 Student
"The service-learning project was the single most useful thing I have done since starting school. It was such a contrast to the traditional class and challenged me in ways that I imagine a future job might." -USU Student
