Giving back is an opportunity to share your knowledge, wealth, and talents with others, and stems from feelings of gratitude. All blessings that we enjoy today were made possible by those who came before us. Because we have been given so much, we have a responsibility to make similar blessings available to future generations.

As a college student, time and money may be limited, but there are many ways to give back that require little of either. Sometimes you may need to get a little creative when thinking of ways to give back, but doing so will bless your life with joy and fulfillment.
