Hours worked at GE can be used to fulfill volunteer service hours at SIUC. Many instructors, Greek organizations, and Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) require a minimum number of service hours per semester. Check with the instructor or organization leader ill determine what service is acceptable and how to track and submit hours. More info on these can be found at the http://cslv.siu.edu/
One program we encourage students to take advantage of is the Environmental Ambassador Award. A student who earns 30 service hours within one calendar year from an approved environmental organization will receive a notation on their transcript. This can be done for every year you're at SIU, and it looks great on a resume! This program is run by the SIUC Sustainability Office http://sustainability.siu.edu/ Click on the "participate" button on the left to find info on this program.
