This Week in LBC Rewards 11.2

We are nearing the home stretch now. With midterms behind us, this is a great week to pick up some points around campus with some LBC events. Don’t forget that this week is Hijab week. Ever you ever asked yourself, “How does it feel to walk a day in the shoes, or Hijab, of a Muslim?”  Throughout the week, you can try on the Hijab by going to the Women’s Resource Center in the Student Center, 11am-3pm. We will give you a hijab to wear throughout the day or week. Also this week, celebrate other cultures with the “Dia de los Muertos” Celebration on Tuesday, and the FAll Feast on Wednesday where you can  join the Native American Student Organization at our annual Fall Feast! Come enjoy some traditional Native food and music, and a brief lecture by our keynote speaker Dr. Kyle White on his experience working for the United Nations. There is also the 2nd Annual African Culture Show: Taking Back Africa Presented by the African Student Association at EMU on Thursday. Sounds like a fun week.
