Volunteering and Getting Involved

Throughout your experience at Bloomsburg, various volunteer—or student engagement—opportunities will present themselves and we encourage your involvement.

On Campus at Bloomsburg:

This might include serving as a mentor to a student enrolled in the Act 101 program, assisting with implementation of campus events, advising a student organization, or facilitating a small group discussion with wildly successful Hook Up Culture campus program. We also encourage CSA students to engage with the CSA program and their peers through Chi Sigma Alpha.

The Profession:

Students are encouraged to engage with the larger field of College Student Affairs:

Attend a local, state, or regional professional conference

Propose and present an educational session at a professional conference—by yourself, with a classmate, with a CSA faculty member, with a student affairs practitioner

Volunteer for committee work (sometimes called Commissions or Knowledge Communities)

Write a blog post or write a regular blog series

Apply to become an ACPA Ambassador or NASPA G.A.P. affiliate

We encourage you to seek out these sorts of experiences to expand your exposure to college students, apply concepts learned in your coursework, and hone your skills.
