SU celebrates the students of JCU

December 10th, 2009

The Student Union is currently planning Celebrate the Student, an event that will focus on the students of John Carroll University.

The event will be a part of Ignatian Heritage Week, beginning with the opening mass in Gesu Church on Sunday, Jan. 31.

“In addition to being a kick off for Heritage week, we definitely want the mass to be student focused,” said Student Union President-elect Amanda Papa.

Throughout the mass, which was created in part due to the recent tragedies on campus, various student organizations will be recognized for their work.

According to Papa, they are putting together a group of students to help plan and execute the event.

“We didn’t want this to be just a Student Union event, we want to make it a student event,” said Papa.

Following the mass, there will be a dessert reception for students.

There is also discussion about holding an event later during the week, but they do not yet know what the event will be.

“Our current focus is to get more students involved in the event and iron out some details in the weeks to come,” said Papa.
