Social Work Organization

Students in the Social Work Program may become involved in a variety of activities. There is a Social Work Organization, which has sponsored discussions, volunteer activities, service projects, and social events. We have put together Thanksgiving baskets, sponsored holiday parties for children who are homeless, and held a clothing drive for teens in need. All are welcome to participate. For more information, contact a social work faculty member.
