The University of Evansville is proud to announce that Rebecca Webb of Crestwood, KY, participated in the Freshman Service Project on Monday, August 26.

The project sent new UE students to 20 locations throughout Evansville, Indiana - including parks, community centers, and other nonprofit organizations - to perform tasks ranging from painting to cleaning to landscaping.

The Freshman Service Project is part of Welcome Week, a program designed to help incoming students transition into college life before classes begin.

"The goal of the Freshman Service Project is to help new students such as Rebecca Webb get acquainted with the community they'll call home during their college years," said Geoff Edwards, director of UE's Center for Student Engagement and coordinator of the Freshman Service Project. "Last year, UE students contributed more than 19,000 hours of community service, and we hope the Freshman Service Project inspires students to continue making an impact on the Evansville community."

The University of Evansville is a private, liberal arts-based university with a full-time undergraduate enrollment of approximately 2,400. UE's diverse student body represents 42 states and 46 countries. U.S. News & World Report recognizes UE as a top 10 master's-granting university in the Midwest, and third in the region for "Great Schools, Great Prices."
