The “Lynn Plunge”

Kicking off Inauguration Week and launching a semester of service learning in Lynn, President Lindsay joined 135 students and faculty from service sections of the First Year Seminar and The Great Conversation for the “Lynn Plunge.” The event began with worship at East Coast International Church, where alumni pastors Kurt and Jen Lange welcomed President Lindsay with a custom-made “fluffah-nuttah” sandwich. Picking up on the themes of the First Year Seminar, a panel of Lynn community members addressed questions about human flourishing in the city of Lynn.
Afterwards President Lindsay joined several Lynn church and nonprofit leaders for a roundtable discussion of campus/community partnerships while students toured the city, hearing from community partners such as The Food Project, Straight Ahead Ministries and RAW Arts.
