30-day Challenge
March 27 marked the start of the “30 Day Challenge” occurring throughout campus for the next few weeks. With the intention of pushing students to give up luxuries like social networking, sleep, electricity and a variety of other themes, the event coordinators urge students to “sacrifice with open eyes.” For this opportunity to embrace a variety of challenges, join the event on Facebook ( for information about daily goals.

Practice Exams
For students interested in attending graduate or law school, the Office of Life Planning will offer free practice GRE and LSAT exams on Saturday, April 6. These exams will allow students to obtain experience and predict their results prior to the actual test date. Please contact the Office of Life Planning to reserve a spot and get details on exam times.

24/7 Prayer Week
The 24/7 Prayer Week of the spring semester begins April 7 and is a chance for our campus to be in conversation with God every moment of every day for a week. Similar to last semester, there will be signups for hour-long time slots that will be spent in the prayer chapel. Students are encouraged to sign up alone, with their section, a club, friends, or any combination of people to engage in such an intimate form of praise. Each day will have a different focus and the prayer chapel will be providing various mediums to engage in prayer. Students will soon receive an email link to the GoogleDoc to sign up!

DC Mishaps
Upon student arrival back to Westmont after Spring Break, the DC encountered a few unexpected challenges. Due to a computer system failure, all of the thumb prints in the database had been lost, causing long lines the first few days back. But after hours of work by the DC staff and the rescanning of all student fingerprints, all is back to normal and the front counter is running in its normal efficiency.
Along with the finger scanning mishap, the DC faced dishwasher problems resulting in the use of styrofoam and paper-ware until the machines were fixed. Students have voiced concern over the temporary change because it provided great convenience to grab and go but contradicted the DC’s strides toward becoming more eco-friendly. There is a team of students that works to represent student voices to Dining Services; fill out a feedback form at the DC entrance to share any opinions with the staff.
