The 2014 Founders Week kicked off with "Church with The Poodles"at Freedom Temple Ministries. Monday, students were able to be submerged into the culture of Africa during the Program, Experience of Africa. Participants were able to hear from a student, who is a native of Africa, as he shared his experiences and culture. Students were then taught a dance influence by the African culture from the Winthrop University African Student Association. Girls Night, targeted towards freshmen females was held Tuesday. This event sought to educate first semester freshmen on some of the resources on campus and how to utilize them effectively. Wednesday served as a nice comic relief with the second, "Willdin' Out Wednesday". The current CSL Chair and newly crowned Homecoming King, served as team captain in a 4 round comedy battle. Thursday concluded the week of programs with "Sex in the Dark" . This program allowed participants to ask questions and receive answers from an expert on the topic at Catawba Care.
