Hamilton college students serve the community as part of orientation

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - It's a day many local nonprofit agencies look forward to each year.

It's the day Hamilton College serves as part of their first-year orientation.

Students at the college get out into the community and volunteer. Some of the organizations include the Salvation Army, Thea Bowman House and United Cerebral Palsy.

On Wednesday, we caught up with a group on inventory duty at the Utica Zoo. Their sophomore leader tells us volunteering isn't just limited to one area, but all over the Mohawk Valley.

"It's an incredible amount of agencies we go to," said Bryan Ferguson. "I've seen the list our director has and it's all over the area. About 500 students go out and do service."

Hamilton college has organized the day of service as part of orientation since 2008.
