Mount Mercy Activities Programming Board (M2AP Board), is hosting the first Club Friday of the year, so make sure you are there!
Each week one of the recognized student organizations hosts an event which provides food, prizes and activities for all students to enjoy. The organizations can show-off their club and recruit new members.
This event is a part of Orientation Week.
Did you know there is a city park, a great restaurant and a Dairy Queen all within walking distance of campus? Join the Wellness staff for a walking tour of the neighborhood. (Of course we'll stop for ice cream!)
Each of us has a story to tell. This is an opportunity to gain the tools to get that story out. Even if you are not a writer, you will benefit from the skills taught. I went through this a couple weeks ago, and I was shocked/blown away by some of the memories that were brought up and healing that happened as a result.

What single hateful moment leaves an impression -- that tweet, this post, his pic, her laugh -- fleeting actions that seem harmless create ripples of pain for the subject. Ongoing torment scars, breaks, and damages lives. It's happened to us all at some point in time -- the ghost of a playground bully crosses your mind, an insult slips out at work, or someone gets a laugh at your expense in class. Some of us bounce back from the hurt. Some of us never heal. What word will your actions spark in others? We hope it's love.
