Fulfilling Fridays event designed to inform students

Fulfilling Fridays, a new event being held by the Center for Service Leadership Office, are a new addition to Waynesburg University’s focus on learning through service. Each week, the event will have a new activity for students to become more involved in the community as well as service through Waynesburg University. These events will happen weekly on the first floor of Stover, right outside the Center for Service Leadership Office on Fridays between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. 

Angelica Good, graduate assistant in the Center for Service Leadership Office is a coordinator of the event. 

“Fulfilling Fridays came about as we were trying to find new ways to allow our office to interact with the students in a more intentional way, and promote the opportunities we have available,” Good said. 

On Oct. 1, the event was a scavenger hunt that sent students around campus to explore the possible service opportunities directly on campus. The locations gave students information on each service opportunity at that location as well as how to get in contact with organizers to participate. 

“Fulfilling Fridays is geared toward students,” Good explained. “This program is meant to bring updated information to students and provide them with the resources they need to get more involved in service.” 

Fulfilling Fridays are planned to continue throughout the semester and will expand on its focus of helping students become more involved in service.

“Overall, we want to encourage students to become more involved within the community,” she said.  “We have a good variety of themes planned such as Service Charades, Carnival and Community and Random Acts of Kindness to look forward to.”

Students who are interested in learning more can get in contact with the Center for Service Leadership Office, and reach out to Adrienne Tharp, Avery White or Angelica Good for questions about serving and how to become involved.
