It's a great school overall, I'm currently a student. If there was a chance to volunteer there I would, sadly however NVCCs hasn't updated this site for awhile. Maybe suggesting compost barrels in the lunch or cafe areas, up cycle for garden & free compost for all of the campuses or to sell, install solar panels, self-sustained housing and discount meal fund like (GMU) for homeless students or students in critical need or low income. I want to help any way I can, to give back to my school and hope for to be taught a thing or two along the way and maybe discounted parking.
