Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Community service isn’t what we do. It’s who we are. When you’re a Lakeland Muskie, helping others and making your community a better place is in your DNA. We encourage our students to participate in community service, because it aligns with our identity as a university. We think it’s a very important part of a student’s overall development into a well-rounded, civic-minded citizen.
