Living on campus is a little different than life in Southern California; however, junior criminal justice major Kaylee Howard is happy to be making Jenks Hall her home away from home.
Students are preparing to celebrate a special Homecoming this year with festivities commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the institution’s move from Mendota to Aurora and activities centered around the theme “Back to the Future.”
Aurora University will host a unique evening of song and spoken word featuring noted philosopher and author Parker J. Palmer and singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer on Saturday, September 29, at 7:30 p.m. in Crimi Auditorium. The sold out program, “Healing the Heart of Democracy: A Gathering of Spirits for the Common Good,” will offer an opportunity for reflection and renewal, challenging the audience to imagine and live into “the politics of the human spirit.”
University-sponsored volunteer activities, such as the semiannual Morning of Service, are motivating students to give back on a larger scale. Last summer, some Aurora University students pursued their desire to work for the common good beyond their local communities and to study different cultures.
