Community Connections: A Newscenter series highlighting the ties between the University and its communities.Wilson Day is a rite of autumn for first-year students at the University, and a big part of their orientation to college. The annual day of community service places students at nearly 100 agencies throughout the city of Rochester to complete service projects including classroom preparation, landscaping, painting, and decorating.

Sponsored by the Rochester Center for Community Leadership, Wilson Day is a chance for students to visit and help out at local schools, churches, nursing homes, museums, and more.

“Wilson Day is designed to help students learn that community engagement will be a significant part of their undergraduate experience at the University of Rochester,” says Glenn Cerosaletti, assistant dean and director of the RCCL. “Wilson Day is just the beginning:  we have an array of opportunities for them to connect with and strengthen the community, while deepening and contextualizing their learning.”
