Freshmen Class Dedicates a Day of Service to the Community

Brescia University welcomed the Class of 2018 to campus on Saturday, August 16th.  The culmination of New Student Orientation 2014 is the completion of a service project on Tuesday, August 19. New students, peer mentors, and advisors – more than 170 in total – will depart Brescia University starting at 9:00 AM to offer community service to a variety of organizations in the county including: Habitat for Humanity, the Daniel Pitino Shelter, Oasis Women’s Shelter, St. Vincent de Paul, the Hager Preschool, the Daviess County Animal Shelter, and the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden.

Brescia University has one overarching goal:  to offer a Student-Centered education directed by the four pillars of its mission – Catholic, Liberal Arts, Career Preparation, and Service to Others.  The faculty and staff understand the unique needs of the contemporary students and address those needs with an education that is customized to the individual student.

The result is values driven graduates who use their talents and skills to build successful careers, to nourish strong families, and make a difference in the lives of others, the life of the Church, and the life of the Community.

“We believe that through education, lives are transformed and through those lives, our world becomes a better place.  This foundation is so vital to the work we do at Brescia University that we immerse our students in the experience of service before they ever step foot in the classroom.” – Fr. Larry Hostetter, President.
