Q: Can you tell me a little about the TCU organization, LEAPS?

A: “I love telling people about LEAPS because it is a great way to give back to our second home, Fort Worth! LEAPS TCU’s campus wide day of service where the students gather up and go out into the community to do service work. It is a great way to not only familiarize yourself with the organizations in Fort Worth who need our help but also, spend quality time with new and old friends doing something productive and constructive for the sake of others.

Something unique about LEAPS is that you can choose what service site you would like to volunteer at. This gives students the opportunity to help out at places that serve causes that truly matter to them. It’s great because everyone is excited to help out and a lot of LEAPS volunteers end up going back to the service sites on their own time because their time volunteering was that rewarding.”

Q: What is your position in LEAPS?

A: “Sophomore year, I was a Campus Liaison for my sorority for two semesters and enjoyed it so much that now, as a junior, I am on the executive board as the Co Marketing and PR Chair. It has been an awesome experience working with the exec team.”

Q: How has LEAPS helped you grow as a person?

A: “Leaps has taught me a lot about the needs of our community. It is hard to understand who needs our help if you don’t go out and find out for yourself.

Being involved with LEAPS has taught me a tremendous amount of leadership and organization skills that I am excited to translate into my future career. Being the Marketing and PR chair this semester has been incredible in terms of being able to carryout the things I have learned as a Strat Comm major and putting them into real life situations.” 

Q: What has been your favorite experience with LEAPS?

A: “I love introducing people to LEAPS and getting them to come out and volunteer with me. It is a lot of fun when you bring your friends and spend time with them while serving those in need. It is a great way to get close to people through something so important and to remind yourself about how lucky you are to have so many opportunities at such a great university with great people.”

Q: What is the best part about community service?

A: “Service work has been something I have always participated in for as long as I can remember, therefore, being able to get involved with LEAPS every semester has been an exciting way to carryout this passion of mine while at school. It is nice to help out in the community that you live in because it makes your environment a better place to live in and is rewarding to both parties.”
