We also want to encourage you to join the Miles4Missions campaign. CAN-DO Missions leads our students on local, national and international mission trips. This campaign supports students who want to serve on mission trips. It's easy to become a part of this awesome measure. All you have to do is...

  1. Log the miles you walk/run, bike, or swim that week to support our goal of 2,000 miles as a campus community. Hint: Different flags will be placed along Tornado Trail, so walk the trail to accrue mileage and see how many flags you can find.
  2. Give online to support trips.

International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. As a joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, the purpose is to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences.
