Freedom Week

Freedom Week is a week-long initiative coordinated by Christian student organizations in partnership with the wider community. Freedom Week’s purpose is to create a movement of people committed to  bringing awareness of the injustices of modern-day slavery and seeking ways to restore justice locally and globally. There will be various events throughout the week with a culminating event on Thursday, March 29 at 8 p.m. in Lang Hall's Auditorium. York Moore, who works for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and as a modern-day abolitionist, will be the guest speaker. He will speak on the issue of modern-day slavery, explaining the social, spiritual and economic forces behind it and inviting us to respond on a personal and corporate level.

Stop and Serve

Stop and Serve is a monthly event co-sponsored by Student Leadership Center and Campus Activities Board to provide brief, on-campus volunteer opportunities for students. With no time commitment required, students are welcome for however long
they have to give. The projects are fun, easy and impactful. Bring some friends, enjoy free treats and do some good for your community.
