20th Annual Make a Difference Day!

 Free Food! Free Fun! Free wheelchair Mission! This past Saturday WJU first year students offered free food to raise awareness for Free Wheelchair Mission as part of the 20th annual Make a Difference Day! Here 235 first year students set out to serve the Wheeling Community. Students worked with community partners like Sandscrest Boy Scout Camp, The Children’s Museum, Faith in Action Caregivers, Welty Home, Holy Family Childcare Center, Mt Saint Joseph, Schrader Environmental Center, Vineyard Hill Green Wheeling Initiative, East Wheeling Community Garden, Appalachian Outreach, Marshall County Animal Shelter, and Laughlin Memorial Chapel. What a great way to introduce new Students to what being a WJU student is all about!

Immersed in East Wheeling

The end of the semester means the beginning of immersion trips for the Arrupe Scholars.  Last week    the First Year students participated on a local “in”mersion to East Wheeling.  They learned about community, identity and growth by working with six great organizations, including Laughlin Memorial Chapel, The Catholic Neighborhood Center, Appalachian Outreach, King’s Daughters Child Care Center, The Mother Jones House and The East Wheeling Community Gardens.  Check out the trip pictures at facebook.com/SsacAtWju to see the work that got done and the people they met along the way.  We hope more students will take the opportunity to serve in and explore this great part of Wheeling!
