This year's incoming freshman class will get an up-close and personal look at Sheboygan County while being of service to the community. On Saturday, August 29, immediately following the New Student Welcome Ceremony, first-year students will be invited to join in a large-scale community service effort. To ensure the success of this event, Building Bridges, Building Community, volunteers are being actively sought by the two organizers of the event, Chaplain Kelly Stone at firstname.lastname@example.org and Assistant Director of Student Activities, Sally Bork '02 at email@example.com.
"This event is a way to make the students a part of the Lakeland family," states Bork. "It is a day to teach them what we are all about and invite them to be an active part of this family." Approximately 170 freshman will be deployed to one of seven partner sites to put in approximately 3 hours of service. The confirmed partners for this service day are:
After the work is done, the day will wrap with a celebration and dinner at Deland Park on the shore of Lake Michigan. The dinner is intended to give students a taste of all that Sheboygan has to offer. Says Chaplain Stone, "The picnic dinner is an opportunity for students to enjoy the beauty of the Sheboygan Shore, and also to meet and bond with faculty, staff, and other new students."
This new endeavor is the collaborative work of the Faculty Outreach Committee and Student Activities/Student Life; and has been kindly supported by Core 1 Faculty, Career Development, the Alumni Office, the Admissions Office, Dining Services, the Athletic Department, the Campus Shop and many others faculty & staff members.
Says Chaplain Stone, "Building Bridges, Building Community is a new and exciting way for us to teach students to live and embrace Lakeland's mission statement. We are excited to see this day coming together."
Additional volunteers are needed to make this event successful. To volunteer, please contact Chaplain Kelly Stone at firstname.lastname@example.org or Assistant Director of Student Activities, Sally Bork '02 at email@example.com.
