350 new students came together for the project, which helped provide community service to the area.

Organizers also stressed the importance of community involvement is at the university and programs like this are a great way to get involved.

“Community service is really a core value of UW-Green Bay in a variety of ways, through volunteerism, service and civic engagement,” says Katie Lesperance, Associate Director of Student Engagement.

Even though newcomer students from 2020 were not able to participate in similar programs due to COVID, they were still invited to tag along.
