WHERE’S WILSON? Members of the Class of 2017 work together to clear debris from Mount Hope Cemetery during this fall’s annual Wilson Day. Named in honor of the example of community engagement set by Xerox founder Joseph Wilson ’31, and part of orientation activities since 1988, the initiative is designed to help the freshman class get to know the Rochester area by working with service, civic, and social agencies for a day of community service. In keeping up with the times, the 25th anniversary edition included a social media component, in which students were encouraged to share their work using the “Where’s Wilson?” hashtag.
