VCU international students volunteer hundreds of hours to local community Volunteering in the local community is a tangible way for international students to learn about the U.S. and experience life outside of the university’s walls. Each year, hundreds of students from around the world donate their time to complete projects organized by the Global Education Office’s student engagement team.

International students volunteered with Hospital Hospitality House to create a mural (above) that continues to send a message of hope to patients.

More than 100 internationals have volunteered with Stop Hunger Now, a relief organization that packages meals for distribution around the world. Last September, ten international students donated five days to Sea Island Habitat for Humanity to help build homes in Johns Island, South Carolina.
