The Amazing (G)Race: Scavenger Hunt
Are you tired of Zoom events and missing the real world? Are you getting bored of seeing the same few parts of campus going back and forth to lab every day, and wish you had an excuse to see the rest of campus? Are you in the mood for some socially-distanced socializing, and maybe even a little friendly competition?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should sign up for this event! Similar to the show The Amazing Race, you will follow clues and solve puzzles at various outdoor locations around Stanford’s campus (many of them the more “hidden gems” that are off the beaten path), and the winning team will be the one which finishes first (or which reaches the most locations in the designated amount of time). In order to cover more of campus without making travel time between locations too long, we’ve broken up the campus into four “zones” (different from the officially designated campus zones), and will be sending one or multiple people from each team to each zone. In order to avoid participants from multiple teams all crowding around a single location, we will be having each participant/team start at a different location in the sequence. Once people have signed up, we will finalize teams and then email participants with more details. Hope to see many of you there!

Large Group 2: IVGrad in/and the World
Speakers: Denise-Margaret Thompson and Andre Cooper. In this large group, we are going to learn and reflect on the place of IVGrad within the student movements across the globe. IVGrad is a graduate ministry within InterVarsity/USA & International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) North America, which constitutes one major regional student movement (https://ifesworld.org/en/). In this session, Denise and Andre will share their experiences with IFES. Come ready to hear about different movements around the world and to share about your own experiences. We will also be praying for some other movements.
IFES World Student Day
World Student Day is an annual day that unites our global movement to celebrate all that God is doing through the International Fellowship of Evangelical students (IFES) and to pray for one another and the needs and opportunities for the coming year. Each year, we take an offering for our sister movements. Would you consider making a gift this year? And on 16 October, join us in praying for students adapting to education in the pandemic, and for students and staff sharing Christ in these rapidly shifting circumstances. Visit https://ifesworld.org/en/wsd/ to find out how you can participate.
