Fifth Annual Sibley Day Slated for February 20
February 14, 2013
Lindenwood University will host its fifth annual Sibley Day on Wednesday, Feb. 20, on the St. Charles campus in honor of University founders George and Mary Sibley. Students will be excused from classes in order to attend their choice of more than 35 presentations and events scheduled throughout the day.
Sibley Day began in 2009 as an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to expand their knowledge base and to celebrate the school’s philosophy of offering unique educational experiences. This year’s event, themed “Community Service (Enriching Life's Resume),” will offer a wide range of activities designed to appeal to many different areas of interest.
The public is invited to attend the keynote presentation by Robert Egger, social enterprise pioneer, at 1 p.m. in the Bezemes Family Theater of the University’s J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts. Also, former Negro League baseball players Geroge Altman and Sam Taylor will speak on their experiences in baseball at 2 p.m. in Roemer Hall’s Jelkyl Theater. Other scheduled activities for staff and students include personal and professional development workshops, an improvisation show, physical fitness classes, a canned food sculpture competition among the residence halls, and more.
The 2013 Sibley Day lineup will also feature a community service fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Evans Commons. Attendees will have the opportunity network with representatives from dozens of regional service agencies, as well as explore volunteer and internship opportunities with select organizations.Related Items:
