“Incorporating service learning allows information to turn into action. Students learn faster and at a higher quality.”
“I think that students really enjoy when they get to participate in hands-on work. I also believe that the students learn better and remember more if they can make a connection to something in real life.”
“Service learning is based off a real life project and gets you ready for the real world.”
“Service learning also inspires the students to be better writers. Students have had ideas as good as many real-world professional writers. The students’ originality, education and practice with a variety of clients help them become employees that stand out in the workforce.”
Service learning classes have given me a lot of hands-on experiences. I feel that now have both street smarts and book smarts.”
