Before their first day of college classes, University of Lynchburg first-year students spent a day giving service to the community.
Some made dog toys for animal rescue groups while others worked on trail maintenance around College Lake. Other groups packaged food for Stop Hunger Now, made feminine hygiene kits for Gleaning for the World, and trimmed bushes at Miriam’s House. Students also spruced up some red chairs from the Dell and gave a fence around Shellenberger Field a fresh coat of paint.
Serving the community is an important part of being a Hornet, so it was a great capstone to Hornet Days.
The first-year students also worked together to compete challenges on LC’s Outdoor Leadership Program ropes course. The exercises helped them make friends and build teamwork skills together.
