Johnnie Smith's UNIV1000

TSU students taking freshmen orientation courses now are provided the opportunity to demonstrate their Tiger spirit by engaging in community service.  Beginning Fall 2015, service day projects will be centered about your major department and college in order for you to gain experience in your area of interest.  Of course, you may join projects from other colleges or you and your fellow UNIV1000 classmates may choose a project of your own such as you see of the class above! 

What's in it for you?  Besides meeting the service hours requirement of the UNIV1000 class, engaging in service makes you feel good. Notice the smiles?
