Students can experience learning that has the potential to be "life-changing." Often there are opportunities to interact with individuals and situations in the community in ways that could never occur in a classroom setting. Students involved in service learning are more engaged in their education and receive an enhanced academic, cultural and social perspective. Reflection is a critical component of the service learning experience.
