“An organization that strives toward bettering campus by empowering leaders, activating change, and serving God and the Greenville community.” That’s how student body Vice President Emily Callon describes Student Senate. Student Senate is a mix of students who represent the campus to the administrative groups in campus; they have the authority to vote on new clubs, budgets from various organizations, and to write proposals for new additions to campus. An example of what they have done recently is getting fresh fruit in the Dining Commons.

As a part of Global Impact Week, The Office of World Missions and Outreach hosted an evening event called “Meet the Radicals” at the Burritt fire pit. The Radicals represented various mission organizations located throughout the world. Inner City Impact focuses on underprivileged youth in Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. Church work in the Middle East, Blood:Water Mission works in Africa, and Wycliffe Bible translators work all over the globe. In addition to the representatives, Christy Dashiell, Coordinator of World Missions and Outreach, several outreach-minded student leaders, and a variety of students came to join the conversation. Nathan Hood, President of GCSA, got a fire started in the fire pit, Christy brought drinks from Jo’s, and we all settled in for a great time of reflecting on missions work.
