If you answered yes to any of these questions, volunteering for SFU Volunteer Services as a Feature & Engage Blog writer might be just for you! This fall, we’re recruiting a few more writers to help us with our mission of empowering SFU students to become engaged students.

You will then have the opportunity to write short (100-400 word) entries on these interesting stories to be posted at this blog.
- Critical thinking skills to identify relevant stories
- An interest in and knowledge of what’s going on around campus
- Good writing and research skills
