Last spring, I made a promise to myself that I would participate in at least one Marshall Community Service Day before graduation. I’m happy to report that I fulfilled that promise a few weeks ago and can check it off my Marshall bucket list. I would highly recommend participating in the Marshall Community Service Day or another community service event hosted by the university before graduation.

The Marshall Community Service Day is a large-scale community service event hosted by MOVE: Marshall Outreach and Volunteer Entrepreneurs. MOVE coordinated with several volunteer organizations around Los Angeles to bring Marshall students to different sites for a day of community service. I chose to volunteer at the Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles, just a 15 minute walk away from campus. The other volunteers and I helped walk the rescue dogs around neighborhood. It was very satisfying working with the dogs and provided some stress relief during the busy midterm season. The experience really made me feel closer to the surrounding community and appreciate the work that these volunteer organizations do.
