Trevecca freshmen give back to the community

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Local students from Trevecca Nazarene University spent Monday morning giving back to the community.

More than 300 incoming freshmen took part in the university's sixth annual Freshman Orientation Service Day.

It's about students donating their time and skills to the area on their first day of school at Trevecca.

Officials said the day of service helps set the tone for the rest of the students' education.

"We prepare students for leadership and service, and we educate toward that end," said Jason Adkins, Trevecca's environmental projects coordinator. "We want to see students that know how to serve and are using their education not as ways to serve themselves but as ways to serve the world."

Students spent the morning cleaning creeks and gardens, and volunteering at schools and nonprofit organizations.
