Students volunteered over 27,000 hours during the 2006-2007 academic year, according to Stuart Erny, director of Campus Ministries. Erny has been working for the last three years to combine the volunteer hours of campus ministries, Tri-S, social clubs and athletics. This growing list is a testament to how students are willing to implement the university's service mission. This number is only a rough estimate and is likely to be higher due to clubs and organizations on campus that do not submit their hours.

“Students voted with their feet and pocket books on this one,” vice president of academic affairs Carl Caldwell said.
