Starting April 13, the University of West Florida will be celebrating Founders Week. From the April 13-18, there will be events celebrating UWF and helping out the community.
One such event is the Day of Service which will be held on April 16. On this day, volunteers from UWF will go out into the community and help out in different ways. Groups or individual volunteers are more than welcome to sign up for a volunteer shift at the Founders Week Day of Service website.
Another event that will occur during this week is a weeklong scavenger hunt. The hunt begins on April 13 and ends on April 19. A list of items to find will be released soon.
This is only highlighting a couple events. Throughout the week, there will also be opportunities to show school pride. Such days include Paint Pensacola Blue and Green. On April 15, students are encouraged to wear school colors to show off our presence in the community.
