Every semester, Lindenwood makes sure that students have many opportunities to stay involved, have fun, and attend events where they can meet new people and enjoy college life to the fullest.

Recently, Lindenwood sent out an email saying that from now on, all campus events will return to an in-person format. The strict mask policy will be continued indoors. Attendees should only remove their masks while actively consuming food or drinking at these events.

This month’s events include International Game Night, Hearts for Children’s Hospital, and Dead Man’s Cell Phone play.

Here are some of the events to look forward to in February:
1. International Game Night
Date: Monday, Feb. 7, 6-8 p.m.
Location: Spellmann AB Leadership Room
Hosted by the Campus Activities Board, International Game Night is a fun way to spend Monday evening. Students will be able to play games as well as learn more about the world. Winners will receive prizes such as hoodies, hats, and shirts.
2. Sweets with Sororities
Date: Wednesday, Feb. 9, 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m.

Sweets with Sororities is hosted by Panhellenic Association. This event is a great opportunity to get to know the three sororities before the informal recruitment while enjoying cookies and crafts.
3. Hearts for Children’s Hospital
Date: Thursday, Feb. 10, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

4. Plant One on Me
