The 2013 American Model United Nations was held in Chicago on November 23 - 26. Hosting over 1200 students from over 100 different colleges and universities from throughout the United States and several other countries, the conference witnessed the return of SXU after an eight-year absence. Representing the nation of Ghana in all-day sessions over four days, SXU students debated issues ranging from economic development in the wake of the global financial crisis, peaceful uses of outer space, malaria abatement and anti-corruption campaigns. The students, who have been researching and preparing for months, represented their nation faithfully, with vigor and passion. Next year SXU will represent Egypt. Thanks to faculty advisor, Dr. Matthew Costello, professor of political science, for leading the return of SXU to the Model United Nations!

The Pre-Law Program hosted a "Mixer" for students interested in legal careers. A dozen students met with alumni attorneys to learn about how to prepare for law school and the challenges and opportunities of the law professor. Alums Katherine Haskins Becker '94, Michael Gilmartin '99, Valerie [Breitbarth] Cglockzin '96, and Lou Glaza '96 shared their experiences and offered advice.

During 2013-14, the College of Arts and Sciences is hosting the Mercy Book Club designed for faculty from across the University to gather to discuss a text, selected by their peers, that can enrich our common life together.
