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 dedication 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 designed 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.

2:00 p.m. At Duques Hall
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 relax. It offers a place where trust, support, and “brother/sisterhood” can be found and fostered in an academic environment.

6:30 p.m. on the steps of Duques Hall
