Last Saturday, the university community rallied together to raise $25,000 for the Allen County Special Olympics. It’s amazing what a group of just 2,300 students, plus a few faculty and staff members can make possible. It just goes to show what a supportive part of the Fort Wayne area we really are.

Classes are the reason you’re in college. Doing homework, reading, studying and going to class should definitely be your focus while you’re in school. But students actually do better in their classes when they’re involved in campus life. Part of the reason for this is stress relief. You can only do so much homework, and campus life is the best place to make new friends! We all know nothing relieves stress quite like a good friend!
On average, college students only spend 10% of their time in the classroom. When you’re looking for colleges to attend, definitely make sure they’ve got something going on when their students aren’t in class.
So, that begs the question:

Or Theatre? Every semester we have two theatrical productions. Last semester we did “The Diary of Anne Frank,” and the Drama Club is currently in rehearsal for Jesus Christ Superstar. This alumni was actually in one of the productions last year: Godspell. Check it out:
We also have a few yearly traditions, like the Ultimate Road Trip, where we take students to a random destination every year. Or the Easter Egg Hunt. Don’t you miss hunting Easter Eggs? Try scouring 108 acres for a chance to win a Wii or a big screen TV. Sound awesome? That’s because it is
Last semester, we hosted roughly 40 campus-sponsored events like the Evil Villain Dress-Up Contest, USF Price is Right, comedians and comediennes, and that doesn’t even count the club-sponsored events, like how Film Club shows movies every week in our on-campus movie theater.
Wow. This is quite a lot! Getting involved on campus is the best way to make friends – so get started early! At the beginning of the school year, we host an activities fair so you can learn what all these great groups are about and how to get started!
Aren’t you excited about coming to campus?
