2023 Work Day
August 4, 2023
Who We Are
Leadership Southwestern is a program designed to serve others and teach effective leadership practices. Members learn about teamwork, ethics, and styles of leadership. They then apply what they have learned in a variety of settings.
What is Freshman Work Day?
Freshman Work Day is the final day of Southwestern Orientation for the incoming freshman class. All freshman head out into the Winfield community to work on homes and nonprofit buildings that need repair, painting, cleaning, or yard work. The event creates positive change on an individual and local level.
Freshman Work Day was started by the Leadership program in 1992 with the goal of establishing positive relationships between Southwestern College and the community. Since then, all incoming freshman have spent one of their first days as a Moundbuilder doing service for the community.
The student leadership directors are currently looking for sites that need work. If interested, please fill out the form below.
Note: All costs and fees associated with the service project will be covered by Southwestern College and participating community partners. There is no cost to the homeowner.
