As you'll see from @LivefromHSU, HSU’s student-run Instagram account, they helped their peers through the cultural academic centers and worked with local youth. Others started clubs and made mischief with the Marching Lumberjacks.
Here are more ways students got involved and, in many cases, made a difference in the world. Check it out!
