We were able to help out the crew in whatever task they needed. It was a great service and brotherhood event.
Beta volunteered at Pease Park spreading dillow dirt on the field. It was great teamwork, brotherhood and made the park look great. I look forward to more events with Beta.
Beta Theta Pi and I volunteered at Austin Pets Alive, cleaning bowls, washing linens, organizing drawers, mowing and raking the lawns. It was great to help about these poor little animals get a second chance at life. Since the center is volunteer based, our efforts were very impactful.
I volunteered with SHARE-Admissions. I was in charge of parking this time which wasn't the most exciting thing, since I'm usually directly interacting with prospects. What made this experience fun was, I was their first face coming into UT. I was able to make the feel comfortable and excited to visit UT. One of the parents even came back and talked to me for an hour or so. I was able to network with him; he gave me his business card.
I was able to mentor high school students at Travis High school throughout the fall semester (last week of Sept- first week of Dec; 8 hours). It was a really cool experience being able to help freshman on deciding their future aspirations and be a support for them through high school. I look forward to continuing this next semester.
