Freshman Work Day

Freshman Work Day - 2023 Group PhotoFreshman Work Day is the final day of Southwestern Orientation for the incoming freshman class.  All freshmen head out into the Winfield community to work on homes and nonprofit buildings that need repair, painting, cleaning, or yard work.  The event creates positive change on an individual and local level.  Freshman Work Day was started by the Leadership program in 1992 with the goal of establishing positive relationships between Southwestern College and the community.
