Service activities are experiential learning opportunities with the intended purpose of contributing skills and resources to serve others. Service is an unpaid, non-punitive, intentional activity(ies) to benefit a community need.

Through the Service Experience, students will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Articulate the essential practices of responsible citizenship.
  • Observe and analyze community needs and social injustices.

Minimum Criteria

To meet the criteria of the Service Experience, students are expected to successfully complete the following learning activity:

  • Students must complete and document their 200 hours of service PRIOR to submitting their Garnet and Gold Scholar Society Service Engagement reflection.
  • Service hours must be documented in the University ServScript Program (both on the paper form and online in your myFSU portal) by the end of the semester in which the service is completed.

Service Reflection and Evaluation

Utilizing the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society web portal, students will respond to reflection prompts relating to their service experiences. These responses will be evaluated as part of the process of completion of the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society Program. Students should have their responses reviewed and, if appropriate, edited prior to submission.
