To cap off a successful Freshman Orientation Week, the Class of 2019 was encouraged to participate in three volunteer activities. Students could help out at the annual Tumbleweeds Film Festival at the Salt Lake City Public Library, assist The Kidnected World with updating laptops for refugees to learn computer science, or volunteer at the Downtown Farmers Market to help reduce waste.
Students who volunteered at The Kidnected World helped prep donated laptops and computers for The Wonderment--a project dedicated to providing technology to kids around the globe and helping them connect with one other. Students put their tech know-how to use re-imaging laptops in addition to packing care packages and helping out with other tasks at the non-profit.
Meanwhile at the Tumbleweeds Film Festival, students helped manage the Clubhouse where kids and their families explored robots, technology, and computer science. As for those who woke up early enough to help out at the Downtown Farmers Market, they were committed to educating the public on how to waste less through sustainable practices.
Thank you students for helping your new community!
