Cornell helps me explore civic and social responsibility by providing resources and opportunities to become an active member of the community. The Civic Engagement Office has numerous programs (ASB, Lunch Buddies, etc), or they can help you find programs/opportunities in the community. The Cornell also has the Connect Floors and Living and Learning Communities which provide student lead opportunities to explore the civic and social aspects of life.
