Hello everyone! We hope that you have had a wonderful winter break!

Just a reminder: We are still collecting warm clothing for our winter warmth drive! Please reach out to your family and friends so that we can collect as much gently-used clothing as we can to help bring warmth to people in need!

Comment or message us with any questions you have! WE plan to distribute clothing the first or second week of classes, so we need your help!

Thanks :)

The winter warmth drive is here! Help the hundreds of people in the Grand Rapids area that are without homes this winter season. Drop off your hats, gloves, sweatshirt, coats, etc. to the bin located in Kirkoff at the 2020 desk!

Hi Everyone!

We hope you are all having a great start to your Fall Semester! 😀

Our first meeting will be tomorrow night from 9pm to 10pm, located in MAK A-1155. We hope to see some fresh faces there!

This first meeting will give us time to introduce ourselves, followed by a talk about what Humanitas has done the past year, and what we have planned ahead in the short future.

If by chance you can't make it to the meeting, but are still interested in any information from the meeting, feel free to contact any of the board members to be updated.

We look forward to meeting with you all tomorrow.
Have a great evening.
