Freshmen Orientation Day of Service

On Monday, August 27, 2018–the day before the first day of classes–250 incoming Wesleyan Freshmen volunteered over 500 hours for 18 community organizations in the Freshmen Orientation Day of Service, in partnership with Volunteer Owensboro. Volunteers from Owensboro Christian Church graciously provided lunch for the students.
