1) Are volunteer hours even recorded in university?

2) Do the volunteer hours we do in high school transfer over to university?

3) What sort of impacts do volunteer hours have on things like program entry/job oppourtunities, etc.?

1) Generally no. Some schools (WLU I know does it) have a co-curricular record where activities and clubs you take part in are tracked.

2) No.

3) Yes, but it also matters what you are doing with your volunteer hours. Some programs require ecs other dont. For jobs, of course employers like to see that you volunteer, and take part in ec's.
