UWSP students come back and connect with community
By Heather McDonald
University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) hit the ground running when they returned to campus last week, taking time out of the Labor Day weekend to help out the community around them.
“I’ve always enjoyed doing volunteer work, and as a freshman, I want to be involved as much as possible,” said Maddie Kinscher, Manitowa. “I’m new here, and it’s a good way to meet new people.”
Kinscher was referring to the Labor of Love program, which she and about 100 other UWSP students signed up to participate in just a couple of days after arriving on campus. Despite some drizzle and overcast weather Saturday, Sept. 2, the group met at DeBot Center for community work assignments and headed out across the town.
