A Student's Reflections on
Project Community
Dora Brantely was a student for three terms at Project Community, a U-M
service-learning course. The following is her final journal entry on the Huron
Valley Men's Facility, a maximum security prison.
"When we wrapped up our Project Community site activities, it was really
important to me. Leavin *n the Valley was difficult because of the
rewarding experien hich everyone a ociated with that site had. It was
like leaving a bu h of newly discovered frie ds, but at the same time I was
sad, I was also lad, because the term II over and with the end of
the term came the end of my firs ' e coordina ing. as glad because, at
that point, I kn w I had coordi ated successfull . Doing s mething for the first
time always m es me anxi us ... but after it s over I rea ized not only had
I made it through, ut mad it through succ sfully.
As far as the site activities a concerned, the thing I thoug t was most
important to close with was to t the men know we were ot some college
kids who were there for a couple onths just to w some monkeys in
their cages. I wanted them to know that we enuinely cared about them. In
order to do this, I made sure they knew we appreciated them letting us come
in and share in an eye-opening experience. I let them know that working with
them made me appreciate them as human beings, not just prisoners."
Huron Valley Men's Facility is one of more than 40 Project Community field
placements in Chemical Dependency, Criminal Justice, Education, Environ-
mental Advocacy and Health and Special Populations. For more information,
please stop by the Project Community Office, Room 2205, Michigan Union,
during office hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

Creating
a Better World
Through Service
The Trained Volunteer Corps
(TVC) is ready to go! Join other
U- M students to build an organi-
zation dedicated to serving the
homeless, youth at risk, illiterate

gather to share information and
experiences related to service
opportunities in the community
and to address issues relevant
to those with whom we are

responsibility, please contact the
TVC staff at 763-3548.

Have you ever asked yourself how some people are able to work so many dif-
ferent activities into their schedules while others barely seem to ve the time
to attend classes? Are they smarter? Doubtful. More organiz l' bably.
Better at managing their time? Likely.
Time management is important to any ,it cI orstdent or-
ganization members and leaders. Inv 'e in c urnpa 'es
means in addition to classes, home m ap s, joband social ts,
another significant amount of time is n'uby orgiza tions.
Following are some tips for improved ti emr nt;
1. Organize. Make a "To Do" list each day or week. Don't chide yourself if
you don't finish everything; just add the uncompleted tasks to your next list
and continue on!
2. Prioritize. Review your "To Do" list and rewrite, in priority order, the items
you need/want to do at the top and the less important tasks at the bottom. Be
careful of placing a high priority on a task strictly because someone else feels
it is important for you.
3. Schedule. Take your list and begin to work your tasks into your schedule.
Don't plan every minute of your day and don't create a schedule that is
impossible to follow.
For more information about time management or other personal management
skills, come by the Student Organizational Development Center (SODC);
