In 1999, The Center for Service and Learning was established on the Brigham Young University (BYU) campus providing programs that allow students to apply what they learn in the classroom to real world projects while meeting a need within the community. The center offers 63 community service programs, many of which are partnered with non-profit groups. In 2011, over 22,000 students volunteered nearly 122,000 hours of service.

Adding to those impressive totals for 2013, students from the BYU Civil and Environmental Engineering program participated in a service learning project to help a local elderly couple whose driveway had fallen into a state of disrepair and needed to be replaced.

A former Dayton Superior intern approached Dayton Superior about the project. Dayton Superior agreed to provide the students with Cure & Seal 1315 J22WB, a water-based acrylic copolymer that offers an outstanding curing, sealing and dustproofing for freshly finished concrete surfaces.

Dayton Superior’s Cure & Seal 1315 J22WB aided in moisture retention by allowing the concrete to fully hydrate and by helping to avoid the shrinkage cracks that are common with concrete placement in hot, windy weather as was experienced in Provo, the day of the project. The students applied the product with a pump-up sprayer and followed the instructions for use on Dayton Superior’s technical data sheet for proper application.
“The students said the project provided excellent experience, and we very much appreciate Dayton Superior’s participation in the service aspect by donating the Cure & Seal 1315 J22 WB,“ said Spencer Guthrie, Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at BYU.
