Recently, Northern Illinois volleyball's Kristin Hoffman went on a community service tour with Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF).  During her week-long trip, the junior took NIUHuskies.com's Flip Cam with her to give Huskie fans a glimpse of her trek and the people she reached out to.

Most students like to get away and go wild on spring break.  But not Hoffman, who has been one of NIU's most community service-dedicated student-athletes.  For her spring break, Hoffman wanted to be involved with STLF because the organization's mission reflects her own personal values.  Founded in 2003, STLF's mission is to reveal leadership through service, relationships, and action.  Whether the setter is on or off the court, Hoffman displays those characterstics in community service trips, leading the NIU volleyball Relay For Life team and on the court as the captain of the offense.  The video below shows Hoffman in action, displaying such wonderful characteristics.
