Multi-Ethnic Programs Events

An SPU student speaks during the Early Connections event

Throughout the year, students can join other students in a variety of events through Multi-Ethnic programs.

Quarterly events

  • EC Family Dinner: We believe in food. We believe in family. We believe that food and family go hand in hand and help us nourish not only our bodies but also our minds and spirits. Join us for a quarterly EC family dinner, where good food, good people, and good conversation are always on the menu.
  • MEP Bring a Bowl: Bring a bowl (or grab one in the office) and load it up with food in between your study session during Finals Week. Enjoy soup, snacks, and sweet treats. Take a moment to breathe with other EC students, leaders, and staff.
  • Multicultural Night of Worship: MNOW is a worship service where the SPU community joins together to honor each other's cultures and highlight the diversity and beauty of God's kingdom through various forms of worship.

Autumn Quarter

  • Early Connections Orientation: A two-day orientation program for students from diverse backgrounds, are the first in their family to go to college, and/or were a part of AVID, College Bound, TRIO, or similar program. Early Connections gets participants connected to essential campus resources and to people who will be important sources of support in their transition into life at SPU.
