Patmore participates in freshman service project
Christopher Patmore of Seymour participated in the Freshman Service Project on Aug. 20 at the University of Evansville.
New students went to 20 locations throughout Evansville — including parks, community centers and other nonprofit organizations — to perform tasks ranging from painting to cleaning to landscaping. The project was part of Welcome Week, a program designed to help incoming students transition into college life before classes begin.
“The Freshman Service Project was a great way to learn about Evansville and give back to the community I’ll call home during my college years,” Patmore said. “I’m excited about starting my freshman year here because the campus is a perfect fit for me and everyone is so caring.”
The service work is a great way for freshmen to kick off their first year of college, said Geoff Edwards, director of the college’s Center for Student Engagement and coordinator of the project.
“The goal of the Freshman Service Project is to help new students such as Patmore get acquainted with the community,” he said. “Last year, students contributed more than 19,000 hours of community service, and we hope the project inspires many students to continue serving the Evansville community.”
