ND Minute visits the Social Concerns Fair
Kristen Durbin | Monday, January 30, 2012
From schoolwork and service to clubs and co-rec sports, Notre Dame students have
a lot on their plates. On top of those notoriously busy schedules, many students seek
to strengthen the partnership between Notre Dame and the South Bend community
by giving back through service.
At last week’s Social Concerns Fair, students met with representatives from more
than 60 student clubs and local service organizations to learn about the plethora of
service opportunities available. A variety of options were available for a variety of
students, including volunteering at the Center for the Homeless and building houses
with Notre Dame’s Habitat for Humanity chapter.
ND Minute caught up with presenters from both student clubs and community
organizations to discuss their involvement in the Social Concerns Fair. We also
chatted with a few students about their reasons for attending the fair and their
personal interests in service.
