The Center for Active Citizenship and Internship & Career Programs hosted the Non-Profit Volunteer and Internship Fair on Wednesday, Aug. 27 in Trexler Courtyard. Non-profit partners connected with students, faculty and staff to share information about internships and volunteer opportunities.

"We wanted our students to begin the first week of school with our motto -- "Not to be served, but to serve" -- in mind," said Pat Taft, director of The Center for Active Citizenship.
