"My perceptions started changing the first day of class when we talked about what philanthropy really meant. I realized how simple the concept actually was. I also began to understand why someone would give of themselves without any sort of reward. After completing the service learning project, my perceptions shifted even further. Volunteering was not just something to do to get recognition. It is something that is extremely important for any functioning society. "
"Learning that giving can make a difference has encouraged me to volunteer more, and I am able to make more informed decisions about what organizations to volunteer for and where to donate my money to make sure I would truly be making a difference."
"With the knowledge I gained from this class, I now intend to try and implement volunteering and philanthropy in my regular life. I was so struck by the effects that people can have on changing the course of another’s life that I don’t want to ever remove that from my life."
"This class opened my heart and mind. I loved how different it was from anything that I had ever experienced or learned about. I would definitely recommend this class to someone because it had such a big impact on me as a person."
