Canton Community Pre-Orientation Trip Fall 2012

This past fall the Center for Civic Engagement and the Canton Ambassadors collaborated to bring the first pre-trip organized by the CCE. This trip was created to help familiarize new students with the town of Canton, in order for them to become more aware of the community outside of St. Lawrence. Students spent time giving back to the community through service at the trail at Heritage Park in Canton. Students also participated in a scavenger hunt that took them to Morgan’s Ice Cream, Josie’s Pizzeria, American Theatre and other favorite spots.  Student leaders led 5 freshmen and shared their knowledge so their time at SLU was enhanced through different forms of community engagement. The CCE will host another Pre-Trip this fall with the incoming class of 2017.
