Upon signing the Honor Code, each student at Hillsdale College pledges to be “dutiful in study and service,” a promise that dovetails perfectly with the mission of Circle K International (CKI). CKI is a student-run service and leadership organization with more than 12,600 members worldwide. It is sponsored by Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to serving the world’s children.
Hillsdale College Circle K consists of a tight group of active volunteers dedicated to serving the community in whatever way possible. To that end, the club works frequently with various G.O.A.L. programs, other Circle K clubs across the state, Hillsdale Kiwanis, and Aktion Club, the Kiwanis-sponsored organization for adults with disabilities. The club’s attitude at Hillsdale College is summarized best by CKI’s motto: “Live to Serve, Love to Serve!”
