This past year Freshman Forum contributed over 800 hours of community service to the organizations listed above.
Freshman Forum hosts a fall and spring retreat on campus where members further their leadership and team building skills.
Members are placed in groups with a sophomore mentor who serves as a resource for each member. Each group hosts social events like going to the recreation and fitness center, attending sporting events, or hosting a tailgate.
At the end of each academic year the forum hosts an awards banquet with who's who awards, along with various other recognitions given to outstanding members within the forum.
