As the first weeks on campus come to the close, chances are that most students established a routine and got into the “swing” of college life. Schedules were finalized, roommates reached understandings, and clubs joined. It’s due to Club Rush that the latter has been realized which was, by the way, a huge success. Great job CEUSA! However, the unsuspecting student may have noticed the lack of numerous “service clubs.” Not to fear, we have them at CEU. In fact all of the campus service opportunities are coordinated through the SUN Center.
The SUN Center has been a part of the college over a decade and is going strong. Adviser Kathy Murray has been in the SUN since the beginning. It is Murray’s vision that keeps the SUN Center growing and the SUN Leaders going. The SUN Center strives to involve CEU students in the service on campus and in the community. It is through this dedication to service that the SUN Center has built and works to maintain positive community ties. Whether or not those ties are maintained is up to the students. All projects are planned by SUN Leaders, but volunteers to carry out those projects are needed. Did you know that by attending CEU you are automatically a member of the SUN Center? SUN Center officers want everyone involved and working to fulfill the needs of the community that makes CEU possible.
The SUN Center’s kick-off project is the Road Rally on Thursday, September 18. It begins at 5 p.m. and gives students a chance to see many of the partner sites in the community. Dinner will be served after as well as games for those who wish to stay and play. If you have been involved in service in the past, are involved now, or plan to serve in the future, this is great place to start.
As always, if you need a sweet, want to fill out a volunteer form, or just need to say hi, stop by the SUN Center, where the sun always shines.
