Campion: In Service to the Community »
Ten members of the Men's Dorm headed to Simpson Ponds on December 3 to clean up trash around the ponds in response to the Men's Dorm focus on looking out for others..
Their dorm discussions have explored what "looking out for others" means and have led to upper class men looking out for lower class men, and all Campion's young men looking out for our community. The guys had positive interactions with folks who were there fishing, and the regional Division of Parks and Wildlife officer expressed gratitude to the Campion young men for their selfless work.
"I really enjoyed getting out in the community and focusing on helping others rather than myself. I find that doing acts of service fills me with selfless joy," said one participant.
The students plan to continue encouraging their fellow students to look out for others rather than themselves, so more types of community service would be a good bet.
