The word “education” originated from the Latin word e-ducare, meaning “To bring out from within”. This ancient educational philosophy of “bringing out from within” carries through to modern times. One way modern colleges and universities apply this philosophy is by offering and implementing service opportunities, encouraging students to bring out their underlying skills to help others. Projects created by students’ own initiatives or with student involvement are more likely to be successful, because the service will bring out students’ underlying talents.
