How will I learn, reflect, and serve in Community?
- One three credit course each semester: You will have the opportuntiy for advanced registration in highly desireable courses that fulfill core requirements. A section of Ethics 2050 usually taken in sophomore year is designed for SSLC students.
- Integrating Seminar: One hour a week , 1 credit each semester. Students reflect on their service experience and examine issues affect the communities where they serve.
- 3 hours of service each week (includes transportation): Students choose from a variety of service. Soup kitchens, schools, afterschool, literacy programs and working with ex-offenders. Ruibal and Rays of Sunshing can be an SSLC service site.
Commitment to Community: Sharing your life with others in class, in 4th hour, at service, Community dinners and social events run by the SSLC student council. Games, picnics, competitions, off campus trips are planned for the community.
There is no GPA requirement for SSLC, however, if you are below a 2.5 the director may call you or your advisor or call you in to talk about how you will balance the 4 extra hours a week.
Study abroad during my time at SSLC? You are not eligible for SLC housing if you are studying abroad in Fall 21. There are often rooms available in the spring because of students going abroad in Spring semester.
