                 Service hours - The rules                                   
    • You may not document anything from before Jan 1 as spring hours.  Spring hours occur during the spring semester. 
    • You need 10 hours of documented community service per semester.  
    • At LEAST 5 of the 10 hours MUST be designated as group hours
    • Individual Hours can be accumulated on a service project or function of your choosing.  This can be done by yourself or with others.  
    • Group hours are designated by the sponsors and officers and the opportunities are sent out via twitter and remind.  If they are not posted here, they are not considered group hours.
    • Use this form to document your hours:   Service Hours Form   
    • Make sure you have signatures.  Another option is to take a selfie of you doing the volunteer work and show it to any sponsor or officer and we'll sign as proof you completed it.
