Student Engagement

Info For Students

Being a college student is more than just taking classes. It is about seizing opportunities to develop yourself, to learn about others and to make a positive impact on the world around you.  As a member of the Philadelphia University community and as a student in the City of Philadelphia, you are in an ideal position to engage with your community in a meaningful way through service.

You may want to volunteer your time for one of our traditional community service events; register for SERVE-101, our service-learning course; or perhaps you wish to reach out on your own to one of our community partners for a one-time service project or ongoing relationship. Explore the site and visit our Community Service Wiki for more information on the opportunities PhilaU and the City of Philadelphia has for you.
