Life is a Journey

Have you been wondering what to do over spring break or just looking for a way to help the community? Then you want to help Campus Ministry.

Volunteers in Action is an organization on Marywood’s campus sponsored by students. It is for those students interested in community and on-campus service projects. By attending meetings, students have the opportunity to interact with other students who hold the same interest as they do and to choose leadership roles in various activities. VIA holds meetings every other Monday in the Fireplace Lounge.

In the past, students have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Knitting Circle, Ugly Quilts, and Sleep Out for the Homeless. This year, students are going on a variety of national and international service trips during the spring and summer breaks to destinations such as Baltimore, New Orleans, Scranton, Camden, Ecuador, and Africa.

“I’m really excited about going to Balitmore because the group I am going with is great, and the servie activities we are doing really expose me to many different experiences,” said Megan Hannon, freshman at Marywood.
