Freezin' for a reason! Today our students took the shivery leap in our on-campus Polar Plunge event to raise money for Special Olympics!

With an 84-74 victory over Wright State, Valpo Men's Basketball have clinched at least a share of their fifth Horizon League regular-season title in the past six years! #GoValpo

Earlier this week, we lost a beloved member of our campus community, student Samantha Salvador, as a result of a car accident involving three of her fellow nursing classmates.

You are invited to attend a prayer vigil for these four remarkable young women who have touched the lives of so many and who continue to have a profound impact on this University.

Prayer Vigil at Candlelight Service
Chapel of the Resurrection
Sunday, Feb. 26
10 p.m.

The program will be part of the normal Candlelight that takes place on Sunday evening. The women of Chi Omega will be participating in the program.

During this difficult time, we come together as a community in remembrance of Samantha, in prayer for the healing of Rose Kacher, Sammy Walus, and Lindsay Hofmeister, and in support of one another.

6,000 followers?! 😲 Thanks everyone! We may be biased, but we're pretty sure our followers are some of the best people out there.

Was your relationship going to last? #TBT to the old campus tradition of kissing your significant other on the kissing bridge when it was located over the railroad. If you made it the entire time a train was passing, it was assumed you'd have a lasting relationship (and a soot-filled face)!

What does it mean to be an ally? What steps can you take to support others in the fight for justice and equality?
Join AAPIC, BSO, and the Director of Multicultural Programs, Byron Martin, for a Black History Month collaboration event and discuss how you can do your part to help others.

Can we talk about this weather? We love to see students out and about on campus enjoying the warm temps while they last! (Because it's Valpo and who really knows.)

Happy Presidents' Day to the admirable leaders who were and are instrumental in creating and maintaining the durable foundation that this great university is built upon. From 1859 to 2017, we have seen incredible growth, and we are proud of what our Valpo presidents have done to create an academic environment many aspire to join. #PresidentsDay #GoValpo
