The Service Leaders program has greatly strengthened my connection with the community. I’m glad I’m able to engage in service that is meaningful to me and benefits youth in the area. Part of what makes the work so enjoyable is being able to share the challenges and successes with my fellow SUSLs. We’ve learned to communicate effectively and play off each other’s strengths to make an impact that counts. I can already see the difference SUSL has made in my life and in the lives of others!

My time here at Susquehanna as a SUSL has given me experience in creating meaningful relationships with people in the community and on campus. It has opened up doors to discovering a new found joy in service, and I am look forward to growing more as SUSL!

Marissa Redding ’22

hoosing to apply to the Service Leaders Program has been the best decision of my college career. I have made amazing lifelong friends with the fellow members. At my community partner site at the Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way, I have helped to plan multiple campaigns relating to youth mental health. I was honored to receive the New Project Initiative Award from the Office of Leadership and Engagement on campus for my work on the Kindness Campaign in February of 2020. SUSL has given me so many great opportunities in the past two years and I can’t wait to see what the next two bring!
