All Kinds of News for November 06, 2019
In recent months College Excel has put an increased emphasis on service within its community of central Oregon. College Excel students have been participating in monthly service projects aimed at getting them to engage with the world outside of their daily routine.
Recent projects have included maintenance of a community garden, restoration of aquatic habitat along the upper Deschutes river, and construction work with a non-profit low income housing project. Their upcoming event will be maintenance on some local hiking and mountain biking trails alongside the local trail advocacy group.
With all of the demands of a college student’s schedule, College Excel sees it as a priority to compel the student community to look outside themselves and become contributors to the greater good.
