Spirit Week

Scheduled each year for the last full week of September, Spirit Week celebrates our institution’s Values and their significance to the history of the College. Started in 2018, the event continues to serve as an enduring tradition to remind us of the vision of Bishop Robert and Meliora Clarkson. Each day highlights one of our five Values with themed events organized by College community members.
