Mitchell is THE place to be September 18
Mitchell College's 75th Anniversary Founder's Day reflects a mix of
activities and events that illustrate the excitement of campus life.
From a lively expo emphasizing mental health and wellness, to a stirring
of a special space on campus for veterans and service members, the day will feature music and thought-provoking programs.
12:00 p.m. at Campus Center
Fresh Check Mental Health Wellness Expo
Featuring ten interactive exhibits combined with food, prizes and
giveaways, and live music by Will Evans of Barefoot Truth, this is a
national program created by The Jordan Matthew Porco Memorial Foundation
to bring the campus community together to "check-in" on the mental
health and wellness of college students. All events are free and have
been organized by Mitchell College Health & Wellness and collaborating campus departments, Mitchell College student volunteers
and representatives of The Jordan Matthew Porco Memorial Foundation.

Veterans Study Lounge Ribbon Cutting
Administrators, faculty, students and dignitaries will gather for a 2:00 ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Mitchell
College Veterans Study Lounge. This is a
resource where veterans and service members will meet, study, and

can be found and fostered in an academic environment.
