Note: the college requires 40 hours of documented community service for graduation. Our office of internships and career services tracks and reports these hours only for the students graduating in any given year. So while all students are participating in community service, students are only asked to document 40 hours total, and only in their final year at the college. The volunteer hours listed above are those documented for the students who graduated in 2020-21.
