"I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
HONORVOL: Hutton Honors College Community Service Program
HONORVOL contributes to the Hutton Honors College mission of broadening and enriching the college experience of Indiana University Bloomington students by encouraging students to become active participants in the Bloomington and Monroe County communities through community service.
HONORVOL provides community building opportunities for students to join with members of the Hutton Honors College and others in a variety of volunteer and social justice activities through local service organizations.
Membership is open to motivated IUB students who have a sincere interest in serving their community. Prior experience with community service is not required; all students, regardless of whether they are members of the Hutton Honors College, are encouraged to participate in our monthly events and meetings.
