CHSE Celebrates | November 9 - 14

 

Mosiac tiger from the Huey P. Long Field House includes the Latin phrase mens sana in corpore sano.

Did you know that the mosaic tiger inlay in the lobby of the Huey P. Long Field House says “mens sana in corpore sano” and translates to “a sound mind in a sound body”? This saying perfectly parallels the mission of our college – improving quality of life across the lifespan.

Join us for a week of living our mission. We have curated experiences, workshops, treats, and more to help us celebrate one another.

Below is a listing of daily themes and opportunities for you to participate. Registration is required for some events.
