Sisters Welcome Dominican University Students

Each year the Sisters host two events that are designed to welcome new students to Dominican University campus and to connect with existing students enrolled at the University. The events are the Amazing Race: Dominican Style and Smoothies with the Sisters.6
When new students and transferring students arrive on Campus, the University sponsors a get acquainted day where students learn about the history of the University. For the past four years the Sisters have participated in this event where students join us and work as a team to learn about the impact and role the Dominican Sisters have played in the shaping and history of the University. This year the Sisters welcomed over 110 students.


On Tuesday, August 26th, we celebrated our 4th Annual Smoothies with the Sisters gathering. We look forward to this event every year and gather together to welcome and bless students and staff. Campus Ministry helps us to get the word out and students then text their friends to join them for a smoothie with the Sisters! Before we know it, students are coming for all directions to join us for a smoothie …and conversation …before and after their classes.

3We enjoy this event because it gives us an opportunity to welcome the students back to campus and invite them to share time with the Sisters at other events throughout the year.
