EMORY,Va. -

Emory & Henry students spent part of their day helping others on Monday.

Around 400 students, alumni, and members of the faculty rolled up their sleeves today to help out in communities all across Southwest Virginia. 

It was a day of service that is part of the school's freshman orientation. 

Students also worked in the towns of Marion, Meadowview and Abingdon at several different sites.
