When the Peer Mentors at Washington College hosted the children of the local Horizons program for a morning of fun and games on November 2, they managed to sneak in some learning, too. The nonprofit Horizons of Kent County provides six weeks of academic and cultural enrichment for children from low-income families each summer. Play Days at Washington College, held once each semester, help the children stay in touch with each other and program director Connie Schroth during the school year. The Peer Mentors plan and orchestrate all the activities, which include games, science experiments, classroom time and lunch in the Dining Hall. To learn more about this event, read the news story.
First Year students had the opportunity to meet the members of the Washington College Greek community and complete community service projects that support the chapter’s philanthropies during New Student Orientation.
