C.J. Gorrell September 6, 2008 Civic Engagement in the Collegiate Realm Being active in ones community can only improve the standard of life throughout the community, and within whomever engages his or herself in the community. Whether it is getting physically involved, or just standing up to become a voice in a community’s plea for betterment, getting involved is necessary wherever the place maybe. Civic engagement is essential to the collegiate experience because it provides an opportunistic door for students, and it helps a student develop strong positive character traits that will improve upon the success that comes from a student’s education. When getting involved, a community activist is given the chance to meet new people, and experience new things. For example, Alpha Phi Omega, a leading fraternity in the fight to increase the practice of civic engagement, has created a brotherhood that demonstrates how involvement in the community can lead to bonding and new friendship.
