Announcing the Riverside Lounge

In partnership with the Presbytery of the Twin Cities, the University Episcopal Community is launching the Riverside Lounge! This is going to be a combination Free Restaurant + Study Space + Chapel + Jiu Jitsu Studio <-- (really!)

Since Covid, there's such a shortage of places on and around campus for students to hang out without having to buy something or study quietly. We want to be a place where:

- Students can chill between classes
- Lonely students can find community + Hungry students can find healthy food
- Students can grow in their faith and their leadership

Our Goal(s)!

We need to raise $11,000 by the end of the year--this is our minimum goal. We have a stretch goal of $25,000 by the end of the year, which would set us up well to begin innovating and experimenting with the students at the Lounge.
