Planning on buying a new laptop for next school year? Put some thought into your purchase! Laptops contain minerals from war-torn areas and precious animal habitats, and they're often assembled in factories where workers lack basic rights. Check out Ethical Consumer to find out how brands rank in terms of their effects on people, animals, and the environment. Also, remember to recycle your old laptop!

College Ministries would like to thank all who participated in worship during the past year. The attendance of community members and the many contributions of preachers, musicians and artists greatly enrich our worship life. Our regular worship schedule will resume in the fall with Sunday Morning worship on August 27 and Weekday Chapel on August 30. Opening Convocation is August 31. We wish all students, faculty, and staff a safe and relaxing summer!
