Happy Black History Month, Lions! February is quite an eventful month, which is sure to keep you busy. This week, there are plenty of activities to motivate you to step out of your dorm! Lindenwood’s Black Student Union has a multitude of engaging events planned, from a talent show to a Battle of the Sexes! If you’re seeking internships or business connections, there will also be a career fair held in Evans. Or, if you’re just run down by how hectic the semester can be, look no further…Self-Care Club has you covered.

Whether you decide to “adult” at the career fair, have some fun with BSU, unwind with Self-Care Club, or watch our Lions out on the field, make this week great!
