Belmont's service-learning program is not only a way for students to get the chance to help others, but it offers students the opportunity to get real-life experience in the business world. Here is what one student in Dr. Riechert's PR Campaigns class says about what the service-learning program has done for her:

 "I think that the service-learning program at Belmont is a wonderful opportunity for students, as it lets us experience real-life businesses before we graduate. We were able to apply all of the information that we were discussing in class to our project, which was then relayed to our community partner and pushed out into the real world. It was such an incredible experience for my group and I to impact, even if it was on a small scale, the community around us…I firmly believe that this service learning opportunity should be required for everyone to graduate, because it really helps students to know if they are a good fit for the [field] they are in."
