As the weather begins to cool down our students' schedules are heating up with exams, essays, and presentations. The Office of Spiritual Life is reminding students to slow down and take care of themselves during this busy time of the year.

Monday, Nov. 13 through Thursday, Nov. 16, Spiritual Life will present #BestLife2017, a week of activities designed to help students relax, connect and inspire. All students are welcome to participate in the events at the Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary. Students can get creative with a Paint and Sip, take a peaceful break with a Guided Meditation, bake delicious food and much more.
