Abstract:Two findings revealed commonalities and two findings distinguished minimally and highly involved students in this study. The two findings that revealed commonalities were the motivation gained from the enjoyment received from providing service and service related to prior personal experiences that left an impression. The two findings that distinguished the two groups were highly involved students participated in co-curricular community service that related to their chosen career path more than minimally involved students; and three highly involved students described participation in community service to "escape" the stress of being a college student where no minimally involved students described this type of motivation. Results of this exploratory study suggest differences between minimally involved and highly involved students that deserve further study in the future.
