Make a Difference Day Kicks Off the New School Year

Welcome to the new school year!  It is incredibly  exciting to see classes starting up and people back on campus.  Things really kicked off with Make a Difference Day this past Saturday where over 250 First Year students volunteered in the Wheeling area at organizations like  Appalachian Outreach, Catholic Neighborhood Center, Children’s Museum, Free Wheelchair Mission, Holy Family, House of the Carpenter, Juvenile Detention Center, King’s Daughters, Marshall Co. Animal Shelter, Rails to Trails, Sandscrest Boy Scout Camp, Welty Home, Youth Services System, and the YWCA.  We think these kinds of projects give new students a chance to improve the city, connect to a new environment, and allow individual learning and growth.  We hope the friendships started and service begun will continue throughout the year!
