Students On-Site For Junior Achievement
Service learning is also a major facet of the Springfield College experience. Springfield College students lend their time and skills to helping members of the surrounding community. One example of this is the nationally recognized service organization, Junior Achievement. As part of Junior Achievement, Springfield College students go out into community schools to help area elementary and high school? students with basic skills such as possible career paths and how to manage money. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved. Area students learn important skills that will aid them throughout their lives, and Springfield College students further develop and strengthen their management, leadership, and communication skills. Springfield College students feel a sense of accomplishment and pride knowing that they’ve helped to motivate young students and that they’ve given back to the Springfield community.

This commitment to service, as well as the promotion of a balanced education for all students, is what sets Springfield College apart from the rest. As a Springfield College business major, you will not be just a number or a face in the crowd. You’ll benefit from a low student-to-faculty ratio, which allows for individualized attention and encourages student involvement in the classroom.
