Shown above: Misericordia University freshman Adam Candelori of Clarks Summit, left and Ross Baver of Bernville, right, were among more than 600 new students at the campus who spent the Orientation Day of Service volunteering throughout nearby communities.
The Orientation Day of Service introduces incoming students to the communities surrounding campus and gives them the opportunity to give back to the community as well.
Freshman Ross Baver of Bernville, said one of reasons he chose Misericordia was for the community atmosphere he found there and was happy to take part in the Orientation Day of Service. Baver plans to earn his undergraduate degree in psychology and his graduate degree in Misericordia's Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. Painting alongside Adam Candelori of Clarks Summit, at the Back Mountain Trail, the two agreed that it was important and rewarding to help the community. I think it is great that we get out here to do this before we get too involved in our classes, sports and other activities, Candelori said.
