Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) Brown Bag Project

What a great turnout we had this year at the STAT Brown Bag Project! We had 45 volunteers gather together to make 400 lunches! These lunches were distributed to local shelters in the community. We were so happy to see alums and students working together for such a great cause. A HUGE shout out to our friends from Chartwells who helped to make lunches with us this year and provided the bread! We hope to see everyone again at our next Brown Bag event on February 24, 2016!

"Cougar’s Corner" - the official SXU Homecoming Tailgate!

It was another beautiful Homecoming Saturday here at SXU! A great day for the Cougar 5K and a great day to come to the Homecoming Tailgate Tent! We had so many alumni and friends come back to campus and be a part of the festivities. We also saw many new faces in the tent as well. Over 150 people were part of the "Cougar's Corner" Tailgate Tent and we hope that we can have even more people there next year! Overall, it was another successful Homecoming here in 2015!
