Some local youth pose on the ice with men’s hockey players while visiting campus.

The university’s leadership initiative continues to bear fruit as shown by a community outreach effort planned and hosted by the student Leadership Club in collaboration with the Athletic Department. The Saturday event brought local children in grades one through six to campus where they enjoyed a meal, played floor hockey and other activities, attended a men’s hockey game, and hung out with friendly and encouraging College students.

One highlight was a tour of our athletic facilities and the chance to meet—and even skate—with members of the Cardinal hockey team. The Leadership Club’s goal was to give back to the community, which was clearly met based on the the feedback received and the desire to make the event an annual one.
