Freshman Work Day

FWD directors 2016Freshman Work Day is the final day of Southwestern Orientation for the incoming freshman class.  All freshman head out into the Winfield community to work on homes and nonprofit buildings that need repair, painting, cleaning, or yardwork.  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.

Due to Covid-19, Freshman Work Day looked a little different this year. Rather than the incoming freshman class going out into the community, the SC Leadership Team developed Freshman Work Day Pop-Up. This event entails of the Leadership Team coming together approximately once a month, to do service work on campus. In August, the team came together to clean and beautify the outdoor classroom, which now is being utilized more than ever!
