Service groups shrinking

Community service groups across campus are finding that recruiting new members -- and helping the community -- is getting harder. Some student service groups, like Camp Sparky and Circle K International, have lost volunteers since last year.

The groups are attributing lower membership numbers to the elimination of a community service requirement for out-of-state scholarships in August. The Arizona Board of Regents removed the requirement that out-of-state students with tuition waivers complete 20 hours of community service per semester.
