Performing service provides students the chance to meet a social need while developing skills they would not gain through formal teaching alone. Service is performed through courses with a service component, student organizations, university programs, on-campus events and community partners. Examples of programs Love School of Business students participate in are The Village Project, ElonTHON and Relay for Life. Seventy-six percent of Love School of Business majors in the Class of 2022 reported completing at least one service experience while at Elon.

This was truly one of the most influential parts of my Elon experience, as I was able to see how my work and knowledge helped our community in a real and impactful way.
