Service Program
The Michels Hall Service Program* is a living-learning service opportunity available to sophomores, juniors, and seniors at St. Norbert College with the help of the Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning.

Students apply for the program in groups of eight with the intention of living together in Michels Hall and completing an academic year of service to a specific community organization that serves children and/or families in the Brown County area. Examples of previous community partners include the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay, Freedom House Ministries and the Greater Green Bay YMCA.

Each group must identify a group leader within the group and a St. Norbert College faculty or staff adviser who will work alongside them throughout the year. Students will be required to reflect upon their service and share their experience with other members of the program and campus community.

The Michels Hall Service Program will help students develop a deeper understanding of how actions in the community connect to St. Norbert College and the common good while inspiring them to adopt a lifelong commitment to service.

*Please note that in compliance with the requirements of the building bond there is an income cap for Michels residents. Information is detailed in the application requirements.

Staff
The Michels staff consists of three resident assistants, one associate hall director and one hall director. All are live-in positions.
