iGive volunteer program attracts dedicated students � Know: "In 2009, the School of Information began a unique philanthropy program dubbed iGive (based on the school’s moniker, iSchool), in an effort to promote a culture of volunteerism and community involvement among its students. During the 2009-2010 long semester 60 students donated 1,700 volunteer hours to various nonprofit organizations. In 2010-2011, those numbers rose to 90 students and 3,000 volunteer hours. Below, two students chronicle their experiences."
