Come to the Seminary building (first floor) to see Kathryn Fenton's "The Land of Mary: My Pilgrimage to Lithuania" art exhibit. Kathryn traveled to Lithuania in 2008, trip which opened her eyes to new depictions of Christ and new understandings of the Virgin Mary.

The Walking Roots Band performed outside Parkwood Apartments over the weekend as part of the Eastern Mennonite University - Campus Activities Council's small concert series. Kudos to the CAC for this great idea! Also, be sure to check out photos from the EMU Masters in Biomedicine campfire on their Facebook page. Three cheers to a great week! #LikeNoOther #EMUview
