1970-2020: 50 Years of Service

The Val R. Christensen Service Center is celebrating 50 years of service!

We began in 1970 as one of the first campus volunteer organizations in the nation. With the participation and support of thousands of Aggies over the decades, we’ve built a reputation as a state leader in volunteerism–and in Utah, that is saying a lot.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in helping reach this milestone. We hope you’ll take part in our celebration by participating in a project, sending a donation, or sharing your story of service.

We look forward to many more years of serving our campus, community, and beyond.


Serving Through the Years

The half-century mark is a perfect time to reflect on important events in our history and the impact Aggies have made on our community and beyond.

Submit Your Story

Many of you have stories of your own about your service experience. What did you learn? How did it affect your life? We’d love for you to submit those stories so we can share them with other visitors.

You can email your story to servicecenter@usu.edu, or submit it here. If you send an email, please let us know if we can share your story online. Thank you!


50 Years, 50 Activities

To celebrate the past 50 years of service, the center will sponsor 50 service activities that USU community members can take part in. Whatever your personal interests might be, you’ll find a way to get involved and make a difference! Read about each of the activities here!
