Students Give Back to the Community
Learning inside the classroom is a major part of a student's college education, but Penn State Altoona is teaching its students the importance of giving back to the local community, as well. Many of the College's student organizations gave back to the community this past year in the form of service projects, which ranged from organizing a Red Cross Blood Drive and a "Fright Night" on campus for Halloween, to canning for Penn State's Dance Marathon and making dolls for children at Altoona Hospital. The organizations logged a total of 1504 total service hours for the fall semester, with Omega Delta sorority completing the most hours with 473.
