Krispy Kremes Available on Campus
Hey Everyone! It's the beginning of a new school year and the fun has just begun. Make some new friends and hang out with the old. Start the school year with a killer deal! For $7 we will give you a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts, a cup of drip coffee, and a Q Cafe "2 for 1" coupon. This sweet deal is available on the campus October 4th and 5th! Sponsored by the Resonate Cadre, this fundraiser will help Quest church and Q Cafe: the cafe with a cause*. Take advantage of the opportunity to pre-order (for pick up that day) by contacting Jennifer Keuer (keuerj@spu.edu) or just stop by and pick up a box at your leisure. These tasty goodies will be available in the SUB from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on October 4th and 5th. Stop by to learn more about Quest and indulge for yourself or with your friends. *Q Cafe and Community Center are an extension of the ministries of Quest Church--a Covenant Church in the Interbay neighborhood. The Q provides a friendly cafe atmosphere for students and the community, computer classes and labs for homeless and low income individuals, children's activities, and social service referrals. Compassion and Justice are our focus. The Cafe is a non-profit 501(c)3.

Simply show your student I.D. at the Brougham Pavilion ticket window or on board the shuttle to Interbay Stadium. NOTE: Shuttle service from The Loop to Interbay begins one hour prior to kick-off, with shuttles running approx. every 20 minutes. Pick up a colorful SPU Sports 2004-05 poster and pocket schedule at the UniCom desk in the SUB or at the Athletics Office in Brougham Pavilion. And GO FALCONS!

Robert Deeble in Concert
Robert Deeble in Concert in the Art Center Gallery, Seattle Pacific University Friday, October 29, 7:30 p.m. Singer-songwriter Robert Deeble brings his stripped down, emotionally resonant, and always minor-keyed folk-rock to SPU on October 29. His new release, "13 stories," has been described as wistful, sparsely arranged, gracefully performed, and achingly beautiful to behold. Deeble has supported shows for Pedro The Lion, Michelle Shocked, Rosie Thomas, Vigilantes of Love, Over The Rhine, and Steppenwolf (yes Steppenwolf...), among others. This event is free and open to the public.
