A 2016 graduate of the online BA in History program, Luis was a Peer Leader, the founder & President of the online Outdoors Club within SNHUconnect, and a member of the National Society for Leadership and Success & Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society, just to name a few. He continues to be active as an alumnus with SNHU initiatives like Global Days of Service. Read in his own words why he continues to stay connected with the SNHU community.
Being a positive force in someone’s life is rewarding. Volunteering at SNHU makes me feel as if I am making a difference and it makes me happy. Sometimes those that I have helped tell me by either posting on social media i.e. SNHUconnect, Twitter, and in the way their smile transcends through a phone call. That experience is more than inspiring.
The diversity at SNHU comes from people of all nations, race, color, sexual orientation, and creed. I enjoy working with so many unique people and of course making a difference in their lives. I also enjoy the feeling of knowing that my small contribution is making an impact in other people’s lives.
I have seen many, including myself, achieve up to and beyond our potential. Study groups have been formed, personal and business networks have been established, and clubs have been organized. I have also seen people smile, cry, and overcome obstacles. Personally, I have connected with people that I would otherwise not have had the opportunity to and as a consequence have forged a few strong lifelong friendships.
Yes, absolutely!! I began to volunteer in order to help others. The interactions with students, teachers, and alumni include being a cheerleader, motivator, and inspirer. However, the person I helped the most was myself. I grew as a person, enhanced some of the skills that I had already possessed, and learned new skills too. The activities I found myself being a part of helped me relax and get away from my daily routines while helping others.
Of course I will continue to volunteer at SNHU!! It feels good being able to help others, to give back, and to pay what I have received forward!!! Volunteering allows me to make good use of my spare time, and to continue connecting with individuals that I know and those that I would not otherwise encounter. The bottom line is that volunteering feels good because it is a win/win situation for everyone involved.
