The campus and public are invited to the Winter Service-Learning Exhibition, featuring roughly 50 student service-oriented posters, from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6, in the Student Union Lookout Room. The Service-Learning Exhibition allows students to showcase visual displays of their service-learning experiences, final projects and research. Students from classes in English, kinesiology, nursing, engineering and other departments will be on hand to discuss their service-learning projects. The diversity of disciplines and projects in the exhibition illustrates the broad reach of Boise State University’s commitment to civic engagement.
Refreshments will be served. Following the exhibition, the best poster from each college will be on display Dec. 10-14 on the third floor of the Interactive Learning Center.
