Your First Year

Into the Streets

Serving our Community

Join us for our community service pre-orientation program that introduces new students to their peers and the College, while enabling them to serve and explore their new host community. Into the Streets gives participants the opportunity to fall in love with Chestertown and the Eastern Shore community and form long-lasting relationships with a diverse group of fellow students.

Participants will participate in team-building activities at Echo Hill Outdoor School; volunteer with building projects to beautify and clean-up Wilmer Park for the Town of Chestertown; assist with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) at Colchester Farm, and take their lunch from field to table when they enjoy a meal with the Fermentation Nation Pre-Orientation group; and end their week serving the College and Town as they prepare for the return of the Washington College students.

Join us and get a jump-start on your involvement with community service at Washington College. This program is $50 per student, and limited to 12 participants, first come, first served.
