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.

Taking a break from classes, homework, and responsibilities is important throughout the semester. During the on-campus and off-campus events, students can recharge and take that so-needed break from studying.

This month, some of the events include Film Series in LARC, Recycle with the Lions, Fall Fest, and Thanksgiving dinner.
