nursing students practicing on other students

For 125 years, tens of thousands have traveled paths that led them to Chico State where the culture of service was instilled in them through programs such as Community Action Volunteers in Education (CAVE). Many alumni are now making a meaningful difference in their own communities, nationally, and even internationally by using their time, talents, and treasures to contribute to the world. 

Tell us your stories of service—whether it’s your own story, the story of someone you know, or the story of someone who has passed on but whose legacy is still living. To submit a story please complete this form.  The memories will be published on the 125th Anniversary website, and may be included in other publications and websites, such as the university magazine and college or department websites, and social media sites such as our My Service Counts Facebook page. We reserve the right to edit for content and space. Stories limited to 200 words or fewer.

Participate in the 2012 My Service Counts campus/alumni and parents 125,000-hour challenge.
