Outrageous ice cream social welcomes back students at Mary Washington

During the week before school starts at the University of Mary Washington (UMW) in Fredericksburg, Va., the more than 700 new students are treated to a host of special events, culminating in a huge Ice Cream Social held on the lawn of the president’s home. The President’s Ice Cream Social for new students started about 10 years ago as a one-time “let’s be outrageous” event, but it was so popular the university made it one of their must-have annual events for their New Student Orientations.
