Speaker Dates are Here!

Below are the confirmed dates for the speakers in the President's Speaker Series. We are currently working to secure a third speaker, and will keep you posted! Please mark your calendars and plan accordingly.


March 15th - Ron Riggio (8pm) *Rescheduled from last semester!
April 7th - Michael Beschloss (Distinguished Speaker Series - 7:30pm)

If you need to be excused from a speaker, you may fill out the Speaker Absence Form. This form must be filled out at least two business days prior to the speaker (with the exception of sudden illness or emergency) or your request may be marked as unexcused.

Please note that the only reasons your absence would be marked as excused are:
1) Class/Labs/Rehearsals
2) Varsity Games
3) Religious Holiday Observances
4) Sudden Illness/Family Emergencies

Open office hours next week - come visit!

Come stop by the office anytime next Wednesday through Friday (8am-5pm)! Who invites speakers to campus? Why Passports? Is service really important if I have a job?


We want to hear your thoughts about the Program and answer any questions you might have.

Interested in a career in Law or Politics?

Come out to hear a presentation and discussion by CNU friends Mary-Lib and Dieter Hoinkes regarding their significant legal careers and successes. Mary-Lib served with the U.S. Department of State, and Dieter worked as the Deputy Administrator for Legislative and International Affairs within the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in D.C. This is a must-see for any student thinking of going into law or the political realm, but is open to all.

*This event counts as a Passport Destination*

Escape Room Passport

Escape Room Virginia Beach is an interactive team-building and leadership development experience. The team will be tasked with working together to observe your surroundings, search for clues, and solve complex puzzles to find a special item that will ‘unlock’ the room allowing the team to escape the room in which you are confined.


This event counts as a Passport Destination and will take place on February 5th from approximately 3-7pm. Transportation is provided but there is a $25 entrance fee for the activity. Space is limited to 10 people, so if you and your friends want to participate email dawson.metcalf@cnu.edu or abby.grimes@cnu.edu by January 27th at 5pm.

Check out the Escape Room at www.escaperoomvirginiabeach.com.
