Homecoming Open House

It is a big year at SMSU, the 50th anniversary of the opening of the University!  Homecoming weekend was a busy time with many sporting events, a parade, and an all class reunion.  The Campus Religious Center also opened up for the students after the football game Saturday night, to give them an opportunity to hang out, play games and have snacks.  Thank you to the volunteers who helped make the night possible, either by providing snacks or staying at the open house while Campus Religious Center based staff needed to be in other locations.

Arrows Done!

And, just like that, the arrows are done in the parking lot.  Our thanks to Abby B. for her work on the project.  Please be safe in the parking lot!

Parking Lot Changes

In order to increase safety and decrease the potential for accidents, effective immediately, there are changes in the traffic flow in the parking lot.  Please enter the parking lot on the side closest to the SMSU Daycare and leave the lot on the side closest to the Campus Religious Center.  With all of the cars parked in the lot, it is difficult for two cars to pass each other going opposite directions without risking an accident.

Directional arrows will be in place in the parking lot prior to October 1, but these changes should happen beginning today.

Thank you for helping to make the parking lot safer for students, faculty, children, families and guests!

Here is a diagram to hep you visualize the changes:

Welcome Grill-Out

The first Tuesday everyone is on campus, the Campus Religious Center hosts a grill out, open to all students.  This year was no exception.   More than 80 students joined us for burgers, hot dogs, baked beans, chips, desserts and drinks.  There were games to be played all over the lawn, but many spent time just getting to know each other.   Our hope and prayer is that these relationships will become a lifelong support system for the students, as they travel through their college years, and then beyond.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped to make this happen:   Cindy, Mary, Dick, Joyce, Larry, Jackie, Jeff, Dave, and Erik.  This certainly couldn't have been done without you!

Root Beer Floats...a Move-In Day Tradition

The Campus Religious Center welcomed students, and their families, to campus last week.  The annual Root Beer Float day brought more than 200 visitors to the Campus Religious Center, many for the first time.  They had the opportunity to get introduced to students, and staff, from both ministries housed at the CRC, learn about activities, and, of course, enjoy ice cream and root beer, fresh from the keg!

Four lucky students were the recipients of certificates for 1/2 pound of free fudge, courtesy of Kay and Steve Klein, of the Walnut Grove Mercantile while drinking root beer donated by Steve and Beth Ritter, of Valley Discount Liquor.  Thank you for always supporting activities at the Campus Religious Center!
