The incoming Class of 2018 fanned out into the surrounding neighborhoods of Rochester during the 26th annual Wilson Day on Thursday, Aug. 28. The main community-building activity during freshmen orientation, Wilson Day provides an opportunity for freshmen to bond with fellow classmates while exploring and serving their new home away from home.
