Community Service

Service
 

Embedded in the Louisburg College Mission is the offering of a supportive community for our students to grow into productive citizens.  As a community related by faith to the United Methodist Church, service to others who are less fortunate than ourselves is a hallmark of the Hurricane Nation Spirit.  Through community service, students are able to gain an awareness for the world around them and learn the gift that one has to truly make a difference in the lives of others.  Every club and organization is encouraged to participate in at least one community service event each semester. The Office of Student Engagement in partnership with the Office of Spiritual Life has built relationships with organizations in the community that have service opportunities available to Louisburg College students (see below). 

Hurricane Outreach

Hurricane Outreach is a student run organization that plans and implements on and off campus community service events for the students, faculty, and staff. All Louisburg College students are welcome and encouraged to join. Past community service events included: 

  • United Way Day of Caring
  • Franklin Unit Boys & Girls Club
  • United Way Build A Back Pack
  • Work with Louisburg Public Schools
  • Local Trash Clean Up
  • Franklin County Animal Shelter
