“It only takes one event to get a student—or faculty member—hooked. Our events are about small moments that you take away with you, such as the child you bond with at Give Kids the World Village, or the wall you build at Habitat for Humanity. Being a part of JUMP, I feel so much more connected to Rollins now, and I try to think every day about at least one thing I can do to make someone else’s life better.”
-Amanda Wittebort ’13
