"Our Whole Lives," the second annual gender and sexuality welcome luncheon, took place during community time on Thursday, Sept. 20. The luncheon intended to bring together students, faculty, staff and allies of St. Olaf's GLBTQA (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Allies) community.
This week St. Olaf hosted recruiters from the Peace Corps, Teach for America and the Lutheran Volunteer Corps. These groups tabled outside Stav Hall and held information sessions in Buntrock Commons for students interested in volunteering.
The Northfield community celebrated the United Nations International Day of Peace with a weekend vigil starting on Sept. 21. The vigil and celebration are part of a worldwide annual effort established in 1981.
In celebration of Constitution Day, a student panel debated "Constitutional Limits in Times of War" last Monday. Fifty members of the St. Olaf community observed a modern expression of liberty exactly 220 years after 39 men signed the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787.
