Campbell, a senior majoring in mathematics, is a member of the Goodrich Scholarship Program, Honors Program, and a Newman Civic Fellows award recipient. He volunteers at the Stephen Center Emergency Shelter.
Jones, a sophomore studying International Studies and Business Administration, is a service supervisor at the Student Service and Leadership Collaborative and marketing intern for the Hope Center for Kids. She is also a member of the Thompson Learning Community and the Chi Omega sorority.
Asked what she most enjoys about volunteering, Jones said it's a combination of realizing community needs and connecting with others.
"It has been really great for me to meet other students, other faculty who are committed to the same cause and I've also worked with dozens of nonprofits, so just meeting other people that have the same passion for giving back has been really great."
