According to Tim Leonard, a graduate assistant for community involvement, the CSLCE is offering interested students the opportunity to volunteer locally in the Buffalo area or in post-Katrina New Orleans. For those interested in staying in Buffalo, "Alternative Spring Break: Give Where You Live" allows 20 students the chance to explore the Western New York area while serving the local community. "We think it's a unique opportunity for students to get to know the town that they live in," Leonard said.

Stop Undressing Audiences and Start Addressing Them

There are no horror movies about it and Stephen King doesn't write books about it, but for some, public speaking is a less enticing choice than death. Making speeches is likely one of the last things college students want to do, but Jude Butch, the leadership program coordinator for the Center for Student Leadership and Community Engagement (CSLCE), believes it is an art that can be mastered. Speakers often overestimate the extent to which things can go wrong during a presentation.
