Freshman day of service

Freshmen Day of Service

Each academic year at SMC starts off with the college’s annual Freshmen Day of Service, which was first held in 2001. Entering freshmen are introduced to the needs of Spartanburg County on their first full day – the first Saturday – on campus.

The freshmen, divided into small groups led by a faculty/staff member and two sophomores, are sent to schools, children’s shelters, animal shelters, assisted living facilities, churches, soup kitchens, etc. to assist with such tasks as cleaning, painting, cooking, socializing, landscaping and any other task the service organization may need.
