Arrupe Spring Town Hall and Summer Fest

Arrupe Spring Town Hall and Summer Fest

On Wednesday, June 8th, Arrupe students, faculty and staff gathered at the Lakeshore campus on a gorgeous day for a Town Hall Meeting to celebrate their academic achievements in the fourth academic session and to hold the inaugural Arrupe Summer Fest to kick off the summer session.

Fr. Katsouros distributed awards to the forty-five students who made the Dean’s List during academic session four. Students must earn an average GPA of 3.5 or more in their courses for the academic session in order to make the Dean’s List. At the end of this session, eighty-four percent of Arrupe’s 142 students were on track to graduate with an Associate’s degree in two years.

After the Town Hall the Student Government Association of Arrupe College (SGAC) hosted a summer fest, including a picnic and games, on the West Quad for current and incoming Arrupe students. Students and faculty faced off in frisbee, flag football and relay races.

Arrupe students welcomed several members of the incoming freshmen class, answering questions about everything from orientation to majors and classes. SGAC President Osmar Cruz remarked, “It was a great day because it brought our entire community together – our class, the new students, our professors, and the cafeteria staff. It was a lot of fun.”
