Mercyhurst College Presents Peace and Love Week

Mercyhurst College will host its first-ever Peace and Love Week Sept. 26-28. 

Peace and Love Week is designed to promote dignity and respect for all people. Information, prizes, games, and speakers come together to help students create a more tolerant, compassionate world. 

Each day consists of daytime exhibits between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the Student Union. Evening presentation will take place at 8:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. 

Monday’s theme focuses on universal dignity. The exhibits will provide peace and justice information as well as ways for college students to get involved. 

Don’t miss the Habitat for Humanity bake sale and raffle for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tickets! On Monday evening the Lost Boys of Africa will share their stories and accept questions in Taylor Little Theater at 8:30 p.m. This event is honors certified.

Tuesday’s theme is “What is Love? Baby Don’t Hurt Me.” Check out local human service professionals in the Union with information on respecting your body and keeping yourself safe. Play “How Well Do You Know Each Other” for great prizes! 

Tuesday evening showcases “The Springer Show: What is Love?” This is an outrageously funny presentation that combines humor and some profound questions about how society defines love.

The week ends on Wednesday with a focus on healthy dating. Stop by for free T-shirt tie-dying in the Union between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Free grab bags filled with coupons and prizes will be available for the first 200 people.

Throughout the week a variety of prizes will be given away, including tickets to Lake Erie Speedway, tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Splash Lagoon, Claytopia, bowling lanes, ice skating, Erie Otters, Erie Seawolves, Panera, Asbury Woods, and much more!
