Abstract
The article reports on the advantages and challenges found in service learning projects, especially in business communication courses. In order to be a successful learning tool, service learning projects need to be based in realistic situations or authentic business settings. An example is given of a group of students who organized an event--through individual and team participation--and overcame the problems involved when a main speaker cancelled. The communication skills, networking, and flexibility required for business-communication functions are mentioned.
