Greetings new students! This week's edition of the blog focuses on our extra-curricular activities at Luther. Whether you are interested in Chess, Badminton, Debate, Improv, Football or any number of activities; whether you are artsy, sporty (or both!), there are exciting opportunities for you to find and hone your passions.

Learning new skills, meeting new people, and contributing positively to your community are just some of the reasons why our students decide to join extracurricular programing at Luther. 

Extracurricular activity is also a key part of Luther's philosophy of educating the "whole student" -- meaning that we value your contributions as an individual with many gifts, both in and outside of the classroom. 

Our extracurricular magazine is a great way to learn about what Luther has to offer outside the classroom. We think it's a great idea to have a look at the magazine and start getting excited about extracurricular life at Luther! 

Here is the link to the magazine on our website: https://issuu.com/lutherwebsite/docs/117583_luther_co_mag_cropped_low_re. 

To help get you started, we are running a contest for newly registered students this month (prize: a Luther hoodie!). 

All you have to do is: 

1. Have a look at the magazine. 

2. Pick 3 activities you are most interested in or excited about (or maybe you have an idea for a club or activity that isn't listed -- let us know!)

3. Write to our new student coordinator at julia.mitchell@luthercollege.edu by April 10th with your response to be entered into the draw for the Luther swag. Include your first and last name. 

The winner will be notified on April 15th! Good luck!
