Combining his love for volunteerism and event planning, sophomore strategic communication major Quincy Nolan has a new public service project in the works.
As the social media coordinator for Clarion Online, the web-based learning platform that allows Clarion University students to gain their degree via online courses, Nolan developed the idea to bring more awareness to Clarion Online through his new “Clarion Cares” service project.
His idea behind the month-long project is to inspire students to volunteer and connect with the Clarion community.
From now until April 27, students have a chance to volunteer and log hours through CU Connect for a chance to win a T-shirt, a $25 gift card and a student spotlight article in The Clarion Call.
“I really want to get students out there volunteering and helping in the community while also raising awareness of Clarion Online’s presence on campus,” said Nolan.
Volunteer hours can be acquired through a wide range of services, including visiting the local nursing home, serving food at one of the many churches in Clarion or overlapping with the CU Service Day.
“When Quincy told me his idea about the Clarion Cares project, I instantly thought it was the type of event that Clarion needs. With so many students on campus, just through things like this we could really make a difference in the community,” said fellow Clarion student, Casey McCauley.
