"A: When I was looking for a college, I was looking for various things, including location, costs and programs available. I chose The University of Findlay because originally, when I was introduced to social work, I realized I wanted to do." --Timothy


Community Involvement

Students have the opportunity to research and pick out a community problem about the city of Findlay. As a part of the class, students are able to write about their suggestions about how to improve that community problem. These suggestions can then be sent to the city council for review and possible implementation. Some social work students have had their community problem addressed and action has been taken.
