NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

Xavier students hit the streets on Saturday to give back to the community.

Around 200 students partook in Xavier's spring Community Action Day serving over 20 sites around the Cincinnati area.

Students gathered on the lawn in front of the Gallagher Student Center Saturday morning to sign up for a service site. They departed for their selected service sites around 9:30 a.m.

After their service, students returned to the University to reflect on their experiences.

Community Action Day is Xavier's largest community service event. It allows the Xavier community to work with surrounding neighborhoods and partner organizations to serve others.
