From Service to Bubble Soccer:
New Year Offers Something for Everyone

The new academic year is off and running. In the first two weeks, campus was a blur of activity:


  • Returning students reconnected with friends and favorite professors.

  • First-year students dispersed to 19 locations to perform community service (What could be more Franciscan?).

  • Lots of students and faculty strolled through the new TV and radio studios, soon to be named the John J. Mullen Communication Center.

  • Opening week activities included Maui Wowi, the involvement fair, bubble ball soccer, Mass of the Holy Spirit, and a campus picnic.

  • After a Labor Day holiday, the second week will end with a murder mystery and Paint U-The Ultimate Glow Rage Party.
