Celebrate ‘National Day on Writing’ with the Writing Center

In honor of “National Day on Writing,” the Writing Center invites the OLLU community to participate in a series of events. National Day on Writing encourages Americans to write and seek enjoyment in learning from the writing of others. The Writing Center will display photos and historical pieces about OLLU and the Congregation of the Sisters of Divine Providence. The community is invited to submit their favorite memories of OLLU, which will be included in the display.
