What Matters Most
Based on the book “Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch, these conversations give students the opportunity to hear what matters most to their faculty and staff.  The themes of these dinners have focused on religious beliefs, importance of diversity, facing cancer, career development as life-long, and other topics of personal importance to the guest speakers. Speakers come from all parts of campus and include sports coaches, admissions counselors, student life staff, faculty, facilities workers, and many more.

"Faith and..." Discussions 
This series provides a space for exploration of the intersections of faith and various topics selected by our student staff. Generally over common hour, student staff invite a professor to facilitate a discussion about the intersection of faith and a topic in which they have some expertise. In the past, we have hosted events around the intersection of faith and politics, women in faith, Standing Rock, queer identity, and more. Dates and times TBD, check back for more infomation later.
