    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

No-Stress Volunteering at the BHC

In high school, I remember I used to stress out about finding volunteering opportunities that would help me add some weight to my college applications. I worried about having enough volunteering hours to impress the admissions committees at my dream colleges. I freaked out over seeking out the right places to volunteer at.

Needless to say, volunteering was stressful.

Unfortunately, the stress of finding good volunteering organizations and having enough logged hours did not go away once I came to college. In fact, it seemed even more imperative to find the perfect places and log a million and one hours.

But there is good news: as a student at CSS, volunteering at the Benedictine Health Center is easy, fun, and best of all, not stressful (because who needs more stress as a college student?).

The BHC is a facility for the elderly and it is connected to the St. Scholastica Monastery, which is connected to Tower on the CSS campus. It takes approximately five minutes to walk from Tower to the BHC, so it’s not a problem if you’re living on campus and/or you don’t have a car.

They are always looking for more volunteers to help with their weekday or weekend activities with the residents. You don’t need any kind of experience to volunteer. If you’re thinking about going into a health care profession, volunteering at the BHC would polish your resume.

That’s just one more way CSS helps you stay as stress-free as a college student could be.
