Wilson family, is a service-focused Freshman Orientation program for students from the College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering and the Eastman School of Music. 1

New students provide their services throughout communities and organizations in Rochester. It is a great way to connect the University students with the community surrounding the college, and also teaches the students to work together.

In previous years, many organizations and areas around the community have benefited from this day of service. In the past, students have worked at the Mt. Hope Cemetery, the Seneca Park Zoo, Greece Volunteer Ambulance Service, and schools in the Rochester City School District.
