Campus update for Sept. 18, 2020

Sept. 18, 2020

Family Week starts Sunday!

Our virtual Family Week begins with the Good Courage worship service and our new campus chaplain, Rev. Melinda Pupillo on Sunday. (The service is open to the entire campus community; see the Family Week page for the link to join on Sunday.)

There will be sessions for parents on a variety of topics Tuesday-Thursday. And there's a pretty sweet treat-and-T-shirt offer.

Families can share their student’s favorite recipes, and Dining Services will select one recipe to feature nightly during Family Week. Submit your recipe by 4:30 p.m. today.
