2018 OLLU Pride Week begins today

OLLU Pride Week begins today as a tradition that celebrates OLLU’s history and Core Values. The week is filled with activities for the OLLU community with the highlight of the week being Spirit Day on Thursday.

Spirit Day is based on the Western European tradition that dates from the Middle Ages when university communities would celebrate a special Mass to seek the spirit of wisdom at the beginning of the academic year. A celebration of food, music, dancing and games takes place after Mass in the Mall Area.
