The Student Philanthropic Council (SPC) announces two weeks of virtual events for students to end the 2019-2020 academic year. Some are serious, and some are silly. But all of them will keep students connected to the Catholic University community so they can finish the year confidently with a smile.

Although SPC has developed most of these events specifically for students, they encourage the broader University community to show its support by participating. Even though students are finishing the year off campus, they are part of a vibrant family of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends.

Virtual event schedule

For most of these virtual events, you'll need to post a themed photograph on Instagram and tag @CatholicSPC and an event-specific hashtag in your comments. Follow @CatholicSPC now!
