College of Science and Department of Biological Sciences graduate Courtney Hall, of Prairieville, La. earned 7 service-learning credit hours and volunteered 105 hours during her academic tenure at LSU. Most of Hall’s volunteer opportunities include serving as a volunteer at the LSU Food Pantry.

“We are so proud of Courtney’s commitment to communities both on and off campus at LSU,” CCELL Director Dr. Sarah Becker said. “Her willingness to go above and beyond, and to learn and grow because of it, is remarkable.” 

CCELL and LSU Campus Life established the Engaged Citizen Program to support and recognize the accomplishments of undergraduate students who engage significantly with their communities to address critical community needs. Any undergraduate student can apply to be a part of the program.

To earn this distinction, the students must meet the high standards of the Engaged Citizen Program. Requirements for the semester’s cohort include completion of a minimum of seven credit hours of service-learning designated coursework, a minimum of 100 hours of community service with approved organizations, and a reflective paper detailing how the work fulfills LSU’s commitment to community.
