I say SUN, you say FUN! SUN! FUN! SUN! FUN! Go Service! This is the cheer to start the 2013-2014 year off for the USUE SUN Involvement Center. Located on the second floor of the Jennifer Leavit Student Center, we have 15 SUN Center Involvement Leaders (SCILs) ready to make a difference through service.
The SUN Center is a campus organization that aims to include students in community service activities. They collect volunteer projects and encourage students to be involved in the community. All ongoing volunteer service opportunities can be found on their website at eastern.usu.edu/SUN.
Dakoda Lindsay, one of the SCILs says, “I love being in the SUN Center because I can make a difference in peoples’ lives. I love putting smiles on people’s faces.” One of his project plans is making school kits for less fortunate children.
Terry Johnson, SUN Center advisor, is “full of confidence in my SCIL’s. They bring a lot to the table.”
His time with the SUN Center has brought him the “deepest satisfaction you can experience,” and he hopes to share that satisfaction with every person on campus. Johnson also has great expectations for the SUN Center presidency. He says that “each member brings a unique prospective and has already taken the lead.”
Jacob Roberts is from Parowan and is the technology VP this year. He is excited for the opportunity to have a “great learning experience.” Roberts is never too tired or busy to help out. He really cares about the individuals whe is serving.
Makayla Chadwick is the SUN Involvement Center motivational VP, and she came to Price from Murray, Utah.
Part of her responsibilities is to keep the other SCILs motivated through discouraging times. Chadwick loves to longboard and is excited to try out her skills on and around campus. “Life is more fun when you are serving people, and when you have a longboard!” is Chadwick’s view on life.
The president is Emma Rowley. She is from Duchesne, Utah, and is loving her second year at USUE. Rowley hopes that “everyone on campus will have the opportunity to participate in at least one service project, and have a fun time doing it!”
So no worries about having fun this semester, if you are willing to help the SUN Involvement Center serve. The SCILs are excited and full of energy. They welcome your ideas and input and hope you will have the best year possible. You can hear their cheer all around campus, “Go service!”
