Students in Clemson’s Community Scholars Alliance program learned of the University’s statewide public service commitment during a two-day tour in March.

In Aiken, they worked on service projects with students at the Youth Development Center and began discussions to develop a service project in youth development. In Columbia, they met with faculty at the Institute for Economic and Community Development and with veterinarians at the Livestock-Poultry Health division.

“This experience was awesome!” said Crystal Brown, a Community Scholar from Cross, S.C. “I learned that Clemson is connected to every community in South Carolina. It motivated my desire to get involved with the summer camps offered by the Youth Learning Institute.”

Community Scholars and the Civics and Service House Living and Learning Community are programs of Clemson’s Service Alliance.
