Community Service at Ole Miss

At Ole Miss, we know how important community service is. When our students, faculty, and staff pitch in, we help strengthen our community, county, state, and even the country. 

Community service can also help deepen your time in college. It is a great way to create life-long friendships, and volunteer experience can also increase your chances of landing a dream job. Volunteering lets future employers know that you can manage your time, care for your local community, and work well in a team environment. Not only that, but volunteering will help you grow as a person and as a studentit will change your life. 

If you have a passion for helping others and making a difference in the world, Ole Miss can help you get started.

We’re thrilled for the annual springtime coalition of devoted volunteers, project leaders, and community members, and we can’t wait for the Big Event’s fast-approaching return!"
