Members of the campus community wrote more than 750 letters to welcome the first-years to campus, as part of a letter writing campaign with IC More Love Letters. Residential Life staff distributed letters on bulletin boards and residence hall rooms where first-year students live. ICMLL’s mission is twofold: to hide kind notes around campus for people to find and to write encouraging letters for people who need them. If you ever have a friend who is feeling down, you can nominate them and the organization will shower them with love. For more information, contact Sabrina Knight at ICMoreLoveLetters@gmail.com.

To find out more about IC Love Letters and other student organizations accomplishments please click here to read Club Hub Volume 5 Issue 1.
