Benedictine Values in Action
Service is one of the Benedictine values at the heart of an education at The College of St. Scholastica. Community Service Orientation (CSO) is an excellent introduction to that spirit of service. The Benedictine value of Community teaches us that great good comes from helping others in need. CSO is the perfect opportunity to serve the local community, learn about various social issues, build community, develop new friends, and also HAVE FUN! Participants move in about a week before classes start and spend time getting to know each other and the community through service and social justice activities.
$95 includes transportation, t-shirt, activities and programming

"It showed me different ways to participate at CSS , also it helped me get out of my comfort zone and meet/talk to people I’ve never talked to before."
