Beta Alpha Psi is an honorary organization for financial information students and this semester they will be participating in multiple events including the Heart Walk, Book Doctor and Women Helping Women.
“Students often become overwhelmed with school and their daily life hassles, so it is important to have a network of friends to relate to and lean on,” says Ashleigh Myers, community involvement chair for Beta Alpha Psi. “Not only does our organization equip students with necessary skills through our events and workshops … we also give students exposure to the companies they hope to work for in the future.”
Beta Alpha Psi recently volunteered at the Orange County Food Bank, where they worked side by side in a fast-paced assembly line packing more than 600 boxes in just two hours. Beta Alpha Psi has raised more than $1,000 for the American Heart Association, and in March, they will be working with The American Heart Association’s Heart Walk to help raise funds and awareness to end cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Student clubs and organizations from Mihaylo College are busy at work this semester planning and participating in a great deal of community service projects. Getting involved in a Mihaylo College club or organization gives students the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and their résumés. By donating just a small amount of their time, students have the chance to make a big impact in our community. When volunteering, students build awareness of the hardships individuals face in our society on a daily basis.
