General Selection (Any Major)
Students within the School of Communication & the Arts possess unique talents and skills that can serve the community like no other group of students. Explore general opportunities that connect communication skills with your passion for service. Local churches need singers, worship leaders, tech and production support, and more. Local non-profits could use volunteers gifted in social media and marketing. LU Athletics could use students interested in public relations and the promotion of game days. Seize the opportunity to connect your CSER with your future career.
Cinematic Arts & Theatre Arts
Students within Cinematic Arts & Theatre Arts are encouraged to support the Zaki Gordon Cinematic Arts Center which offers students the opportunity to fulfill their Christian Service while gaining experience with equipment and operations. Students should also explore service opportunities in the Play Production Staff, King’s Players, and Scaremare.
Through the Theatre Original Writing Project, students will assist Dr. Linda Cooper with the process of grant-writing. This is a great way to boost your resume while helping to write original plays.

Digital Media & Journalism
Students within the department of Digital Media & Journalism have some great ways to serve the wider LU Community. Serve at the Liberty Champion by writing for news or by working in photography, copy editing, and much more. Help with tech support at Thomas Road Baptist Church or other churches in the area. Students can also serve at 90.9 The Light, Broadcast Communications in Athletics, or LU Online Engagement.

Strategic & Personal Communication
Students with majors in Strategic & Personal Communication are highly skilled at crafting messages for the marketplace and understanding how to relate to their audience. Students in this field should seek out opportunities where they can put these skills to use in the community. Athletics Communications is a great place to serve on campus, as well as the LU Forensics team and SGA PRSSA club. Liberty Counsel has opportunities for students to use their skills in a legal context through marketing and research.

Studio & Digital Arts
As the modern world becomes increasingly digitized, there is a growing need for students to use their digital media skills in service to others. Students within Studio and Digital Media can do this in a variety of ways. Currently, most of these opportunities are through campus departments, such as Athletics Creative and LU AIGI. LU After Curfew is a new SGA club that produces various content for the LU student body.
In the wider community, students who are skilled in digital media should look for ways to assist local churches and non-profits with their digital footprint. Students can help with web design, social media, marketing, or any number of ways that can help organizations further their mission.
