VSO brings people from different walks of life together for a common good. Giving back to society and helping others, gaining new experiences, discovering hidden talents, gaining a sense of accomplishment and contentment, creating networks and even building career options.

Seeing the number of times we turn to the volunteers for their help in any event in the campus, its safe to say that VSO is the backbone of Manipal University! No event can happen without the support of VSO!
