It’s time for a change. The ACU Study Abroad office is designing new program t-shirts, and we want your help! All ACU Study Abroad alumni get a site-specific shirt when they return from their program in Leipzig, Montevideo, or Oxford. Our current T-shirt design was created by Eric Munoz, an Art and Graphic Design major who studied abroad in Leipzig, Germany in Spring 2013.

Think you have what it takes to create our next design? Keep reading to learn how to enter our t-shirt design contest, and who knows, maybe next year you will see your design being worn all over campus.

To submit a design, please email proofs to studyabroad@acu.edu with the subject line “Location T-shirt Contest 2020” All T-shirt submissions must be made by 5:00 pm on January 15, 2021.

THURSDAY: Department Chapel @11:20 (split between Shore Gallery, 143 and 141).

Join us to hear Daylon Franklin (Jr. Graphic Design) & Camille Wescott (Jr. Graphic Design) start our series this Thursday.

Over the past 6 months, our country has been strongly focused on the pandemic, racial justice, and law enforcement. A&D chapel has always tried to be about listening to those in our community. This semester we thought it would be impactful to spend time listening to students and alumni of color from the A&D community.

The series will explore two topics and the intersections between them.

The Communities We Come From: Chapel should be a place to share the beauty and complexity of the places we have come from. We should honor those communities with attention and storytelling. We should honor the members of our community by creating a space to tell those stories. Our prior communities travel with us and we will take this ACU community forward to wherever we go next. Honoring the communities we have come from will enrich us all as we move on from this place.

Racial Justice and Law Enforcement: As speakers explore the communities of their past we will ask that they share the stories, experiences, and relationships that helped mold their attitudes toward the topics that are so relevant to our current cultural climate, namely the justice system. It is often through storytelling that we come to know each other most deeply.

Jesus bore witness to the place and time he walked among us and he reacted with deep compassion and care. In our moments of worship this semester, we will bear witness to each other’s stories and try to walk as Jesus did with compassion and care for one another.

Keep watching this space and we will
