Every year, the Residence Hall Association provides students on campus with the opportunity to serve as part of Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service. The event, which has been sponsored by USA WEEKEND and Points of Light for over two decades, aims to connect people with opportunities to serve while increasing an overall sense of community. It might sound like a simple concept, but every year millions of volunteers come together to make a difference in the communities in which they live.

“The youth need more role models that they can look up to,” Matt Gannon, a sophomore at St. Norbert College, declared early on in my interview with him. Serving with the Greater Green Bay YMCA through Michels Hall Service Program gave Matt the opportunity to step up to the plate and become a role model for a group of 5th grade students in the Eisenhower Elementary after-school program. By working with the students one on one to tutor them in math and reading, Matt is able to share his passion for learning and inspire these students to work hard to make their dreams come true.
One week from today, the St. Norbert College community will be gathering together to celebrate service. On Tuesday, May 6, 2014 the Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning will be hosting our annual Celebrating Service event. Through spoken stories and visual displays, this event will showcase how students are impacting our community through service. Join us in celebration beginning at 3:00pm in Todd Wehr Hall!
