LIFE Week 2017

Please join us for LIFE Week—a week for the campus to come together for events that foster respect for the dignity of all life. April 24 - 28, 2017.

Hosted by Students for Life, each day of LIFE Week centers on a different life issue, with opportunities for service, displays, prayer experiences and discussion. The goal is to provide a forum for the education of our campus community on all facets and stages of human life, as well as to foster an increased respect for the dignity of all life. All are welcome; free food at all events.
