Each person that is set on this earth brings something unique to the table. On Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 6:30 p.m., the Lynch Learning Center will be hosting a student panel in honor of Learning Disabilities Month. This event will feature a panel of students who are involved in the Lynch Learning Center and their experiences within the Loras community. This the first time that this panel will be held. With this panel, the center hopes to help students embrace what makes people who they are, and break the stigma of what differences mean, as well as celebrate them.
Loras is a community that embraces everyone, no matter of their skin color, sexual orientation, economic status, religion, or other qualities. As a community, it is important to be aware of the many people that call Loras home, and of what they offer. Each and every Duhawk is unique, and it is important to acknowledge that. In the world these days, there seems to be the stigma that everyone has to be the same, yet that is not the case. Being unique needs to be seen as something that is cool and fun instead of as something bad and weird.
If you plan on attending, please come with an open mind, ready to get to know these students and what they have to offer our special home on the bluffs of the Mississippi. These students are more than ready to help the Loras community better understand what it means to have a disability and that it is not all bad. The Duhawk community is unlike any other, and this is a chance to get to know some awesome Duhawks.
The event will be held in the Kehl Room of the Alumni Campus Center (by Student Union office). Refreshments and light snacks will follow. RSVP is not needed but seating is limited.
