Feb. 9th, 2014 - Cheering at Special Olympics Basketball Tournament

The Special Olympics will be holding a basketball tournament at Colorado Mesa University. We are asking our members come ready to cheer their lungs out and ask that everyone bring large signs of general encouragement for the athletes. We also encourage you to wear your yellow volunteer shirts.

We have had a lot of fun cheering at previous Special Olympics events and the athletes love the support. Five basketball courts will be in use (2 in the Maverick Pavilion, 1 above the varsity court and 2 in the student center) and we'll likely need to split up our members to cheer accordingly. We plan to initially meet at the Recreation Center Gym. Plan on parking near the athletic fields. We are unable to provide a firm ending time due to the nature of the tournament and people are welcome to come and go as they need. Late arrivals are welcome for this event and can help us have sufficient numbers at the end of the event.

Jan. 26th, 2014 - UniversiTea: Are the Nonreligious Outcasts?

UniversiTea is a chance to discuss often philosophical and challenging topics in a comfortable and relaxed environment. We provide tea and if you feel like bringing a snack to share, please do so. Our topic will explore whether or not the nonreligious are viewed as outcasts in modern society both nationally and at the local level. Can negative stereotypes be combated, is it necessary to do so, and what can we do at the local level to improve things for other nonreligious individuals?

When: Sunday, January 26th from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Where: Sally's House (ask for directions if necessary)
