* Celebrating Powerful Moments with the Ringing of the Peace Bell

Mother Teresa said, “Peace begins with a smile. If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” Today, a new ritual begins at the University of Evansville. From this point forward, we will celebrate the Powerful Moments of our colleagues and classmates by asking members of the campus community to ring the Interfaith Peace Bell located between the Ridgway University Center and the Bower Suhrheinrich Library in recognition of their achievements.

Members of the campus community who experience Powerful Moments by landing an internship, depositing with our admissions office, publishing a paper, and so forth are invited to signify the good news by ringing the bell. There are only two rules for bell-ringing….

  1. Invite someone to accompany you for the bell-ringing so you can celebrate the experience with someone else in our campus community and
  2. Take a photo of the bell-ringing, along with a short description of your Powerful Moment, and send it to Powerful Moments Task Force or use the hashtag #AcedIt on social media.

And if you are out and about on campus and see someone ring the bell– make sure to ask them about their Powerful Moment so we can all share in the exciting news!

4. Pics or it didn’t happen. Remember, we’re trying to promote school spirit both on campus and online through the use of the hashtag, #UEPurpleFriday, so be sure to snap a picture with your purple people!
