Events 

There is very limited access to campus, and we are following all health and safety guidelines. For this reason, there will not be events held on campus in person this Fall. Clubs and Student Governance groups who have Fall budgets will work with their advisors to determine their ability to host and support low-risk, virtual events. Any virtual events approved will be communicated via newsletter and the campus calendar. 

Spiritual Well-being and Holistic Care - NEW 

Chaplain Melissa Bennett, Student Activities Assistant Director of Spirituality and Meaning Making, is available for 1 to 1 spiritual care – accompanying students as they navigate college life. Spiritual Care is for everyone – spiritual and non-spiritual, religious and non-religious, you can be from any faith tradition or no faith tradition. It is a campus resource that provides a space to talk about purpose, belonging, community, connection, grief, joy, and deepening your relationship with self and others. Melissa is committed to justice work and can assist you in finding practices that help you feel grounded, feel centered, express your values, find meaning in your role as a student, and help you integrate your learning into your whole self.
