"Discover Cleveland" is a program that provides an opportunity for new students to learn more about community service, Cleveland, and OCO's community partners. BW is just 20 minutes from Cleveland, a city with a lot to offer. What better way to get to know your new community than through a service immersion experience? The program occurs before the start of classes and BW's Weekend of Welcome.
While each year is a little different, the 2014 program included service at the Greater Cleveland Foodbank, Bishop Cosgrove Center, Medwish International and St. Augustine's Health Campus. Outings included a Cleveland scavenger hunt, bowling at the Corner Alley downtown, a visit to West Side Market in Ohio City, and tasty treats at Sweet Moses Soda Fountain and Treat Shop in the Gordon Square District.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
– Margaret Mead
