New Group: Support Group for Families, Friends, and Significant Others of Military Personnel

Alex Ketchum ’12 writes in about a new group (not the a Capella group) that hopes to serve as a space for family, friends, and significant others of military personnel:

Do you have friends, family, and/or significant others in the military and feel like you need a space to discuss your personal experiences? Are you looking for a supportive space to share your feelings and not feel isolated?

This group is not just for people connected to the U.S. military, but for friends, family, and lovers of military personnel around the world. While experiences from place to place may be different, many of the feelings of isolation, loss, and distance can create a commonality. Furthermore, this is not a political group. While it is very important to have spaces to discuss the politics, morals, and economics of the military, this is not that space. We are a support group, seeking to work together and help one another.

Interfaith Justice League Meeting

From Carmen Yip ’12:

What’s next after Fast-a-Thon? Can we do more? Or are you simply curious as to what “interfaith” is?

Please join us for a small gathering while we discuss about dialogues, interactions and collaboration between different religion traditions. This week, we will mainly look at slam poetry and modern music of different faiths.

All are welcome! You don’t have to be “religious” to join!

Date: Oct. 6
Time: 8:50 PM – 10:00 PM
Place: Benches in front of Sci-Li (indoors)
