Spirit Week 2020



Spirit Week 2020

October 26-31

Show your love for Lindenwood

Due to measures put in place to promote your health and safety, we are unable to host Homecoming or Dark Carnival this year. We know that this may come as a disappointment to many of you.

Therefore, we have decided to implement a new weeklong series of events that adhere to our safety guidelines, with many engaging activities for our Lindenwood Family.

Kick Off & Town Hall

Monday, Oct. 26 at 12 p.m.

Join President Porter, the Lindenwood Student Government president, and Alumni Relations as we kick off spirit week with university updates, spirit week details, and updates for our alumni & friends. First 500 people to register and attend the town hall will receive a Spirit Week t-shirt!

Hallowed Walls

Set Up: October 22 - 25
On Display: October 26 - 31

Lindenwood students, here is a chance to celebrate your organization! Showcase your artistic talents by painting a mini mural. The mini mural should incorporate your pride for Lindenwood and your organization. Mini murals will be displayed along Butler Way Street. Three winning organizations will receive $100 in org money and points towards their organization.

Mini murals will be evaluated on three criteria: visual impact, creativity, and LU Spirit.

Participants must adhere to the following rules:

  • Your mini mural must be decorated prior to Oct. 26
  • Mini murals must adhere to all organization conduct guidelines.

Organizations must register by 10/16/20 to participate. The university will provide the mini mural wall, a painting kit, and a drop cloth. Winners will be announced during the Let’s Get Quizzical Spooky Spectacular. See InvolveU for more details and registration.
