Stronger Than One
Want to ask the tough questions? Stronger Than One meets on Monday nights at 6:30 p.m. This is a free men's group for SPU undergraduates led by Dave Lutz. Dave was a college pastor and conference speaker for six years before going on to complete his master's in psychology - he is now a therapist and life coach. Dave still keeps in contact with the men from the first guy's group he led over seven years ago - and counts himself privileged to have been a part of their lives. Please contact Dave with questions or come into the Student Counseling Center in Watson Hall to sign up. Contact: Dave Lutz, sdl@qwest.net, 206-369-2185.

Spring-Cleaning-Out Your Closet for Street Youth
Do you have a pair of pants that just don't seem to be worn anymore? Or how about that pair of shoes that remain inside the shoebox in the back of your closet? Well, come back from Spring Break with clothing items to donate to homeless youth. March 30-April 7, there will be a table at Gwinn and the SUB where you can bring your donations! They will be given to Street Youth Ministries and New Horizons Ministries in Seattle. Thank you for your thoughtfulness! For more information contact Tiffany, foremt@spu.edu.

Books for Baghdad
SPU's Dr. Ruth Ediger has teamed up with Seattle University's Dr. Sarah Berry to collect books for the non-profit organization called Books for Baghdad. We are asking for any textbooks that students would be willing to donate, such as one's that have gone out of date or out of print or even the ones that students haven't been able to sell back to the books store. Text books, fiction or non-fiction books: any book is welcome, no matter what the subject is, including different language texts as well. Book donations can be brought to the fourth floor of Alexander Hall, Dr. Ediger's office. Or if students want someone to come and pick up their books they can contact Katie Stalley at stallk@spu.edu. The Books will be going to university students in Baghdad and to help them complete their library which was looted and destroyed during the war. For more information you can contact Dr. Berry at sberry@seattleu.edu. This is an amazing way to help the war effort in a positive way that is within your means!
