Volunteering is a great way to enhance your University experience. It's a great way to make new friends and become part of the local community as well as developing new skills and experiences which will look great on your CV when you start job hunting.
There are a wide range of opportunities to get involved. These range from activities that support other students and improve the University community as a result, through to getting involved in charities and not for profit organisations in the wider community outside of campus.
