DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THE MEETING FOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 20 AT 6:00 P.M. IN FLITE HAS BEEN CANCELED. UPDATES TO FOLLOW.
The purpose of this series of events is to expose students to a rapidly growing but widely misunderstood religious sub-culture in west Michigan. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the history of paganism in Europe and the United States, experience a modern pagan ceremony, and discuss beliefs and practices with modern practitioners. This cultural event series will be led by Julie Rudolph from Educational Counseling & Disabilities Services and Dr. Rebecca Sammel from Language and Literature. There will be an informational meeting on January 20 at 6:00 PM in FLITE 438.
