HDFS Student Outreach and Undergraduate Leadership

Get Involved

Get Involved with HDFS SOUL

SOUL is a student-run organization through the College of Health and Human Sciences. The club focuses on uniting the HDFS department with CSU and the Fort Collins community through projects and events powered by student volunteers.

Homecoming Pancake Breakfast

We are solely funded by donations from the CSU and Fort Collins communities. These donations and fundraising efforts made by SOUL members are what make all of our community service projects possible

Events in which our members participate in include:

  • Cans around the Oval
  • Early Childhood Center Pancake Breakfast – Homecoming Weekend Celebration
  • Fall Clean Up
  • Thanksgiving Baskets
  • Kids at Heart
  • CSUnity
  • Ram Kidz Village
  • And many more…

Membership is open to anyone who is a full-time HDFS major or Gerontology minor. Members are volunteers, but SOUL can also be taken for credit. In order to earn credit, members must complete 45 hours of SOUL service per credit hour. Up to two upper-division credits may be earned in a semester.

The benefits of getting involved with SOUL include credit toward graduation as well as developing valuable leadership skills. Members work closely with the HDFS department, establishing contacts for future events.

To become an SOUL member, simply attend one of the weekly meetings to talk to the officers about getting involved.
