CALLING ALL STUDENTS!
We can't wait to welcome everyone back in person to our beloved spaces in Anabel Taylor Hall! In preparation for the Fall, the ministry staff will be tweaking some of our rooms to make them more usable and welcoming. As part of this effort, we want to find new names for the "Lounge" and "Redlin Room" which better reflect the rooms' functions and which sound inviting to students. Can you help? Please make your suggestions
by July 25. Then check back on Flocknote next week to cast your vote!
