students to gain valuable work experiences. The application deadline is

Thursday January 16,2003, the Office of Community Service will be holding
its Spring 2003 Volunteer Organization Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the
colonnade of the Wayne J. Reitz Union. This event is being held to increase
the awareness of volunteerism, and to give students more opportunities to
serve their community.  Our main goal is
to make volunteering more accessible and convenient.  There will be numerous
projects and programs that will be geared to best suit the needs and
interests of students.  The fair will also be able to educate those who have
not been exposed to volunteering.

We have invited numerous volunteer organizations from the University of
Florida and the Gainesville community. UF students and faculty will have the
opportunity to learn more about these organizations find out about the
numerous service projects that are within their grasp. We hope that through
this event, the University of Florida will continue to expand and extend its
reputation as a institution that works not only for the benefit of its own
affiliates, but also for the good of the community.
