Paige Salutric of Hawthorn Woods Participates in University of Evansville Freshman Service Project
The University of Evansville is proud to announce that Paige Salutric of Hawthorn Woods, IL, participated in the Freshman Service Project on Monday, August 20.
The project sent new UE students to 20 locations throughout Evansville, Indiana - including parks, community centers, and other nonprofit organizations - to perform tasks ranging from painting to cleaning to landscaping.
The Freshman Service Project is part of Welcome Week, a program designed to help incoming students transition into college life before classes begin.
"The goal of the Freshman Service Project is to help new students such as Paige Salutric get acquainted with the community they'll call home during their college years," said Geoff Edwards, director of UE's Center for Student Engagement and coordinator of the Freshman Service Project. "Last year, UE students contributed more than 19,000 hours of community service, and we hope the Freshman Service Project inspires many students to continue serving the Evansville community."
