BU's kicking off yet another academic year, and IVME's back again with tons of events planned for everyone! Check out what's coming up, and as always, feel free to suggest activities!
Summit (Sunday, Aug. 25 -Thursday, Aug. 29)
This annual retreat is a great opportunity for returning IV members and members of our Leadership Team to reconnect and prayerfully prepare for the upcoming IVME year.
Floorstorming (Monday, Sept. 2)
Attention Freshmen (and friends of Freshmen)! We'll be making rounds of various dorms/floors around campus, homemade cookies in tow. So let us know where to find you/your Freshmen friends, and we'll visit that floor with our baked goodies!
For IV members interested in helping out with our Floorstorming event by giving cookies and talking to freshmen tomorrow, please meet in the **GSU backcourt at 2pm**! We will talk about how to floorstorm, distribute cookies, split into teams, pray for the floors we're going to hit, and go forth!
Time: 2pm Place: Freshmen dorms/floors

Community Groups start (week of Sept. 9)
Join us in day- and interest-based small groups that hang out together and seek to foster a sense of community both within themselves and with the campus around them. Some of the things Community Groups (CGs) tend to do are eat together, hold Bible studies, and host events (such as games nights, proxe stations, potlucks, and weekend/day trips). Bring your friends!

What's your favorite movie and/or game? Grab it and a friend and come chill to celebrate our first completed week of school this term!
