Bringing back a long held tradition
This petition is to be signed by Luther College students, staff, faculty and alumni who would like to see a tradition be returned to Luther. As of late a new seating arrangement during chapel has been implemented wherein some students sit in chairs, others on the bleachers, and faculty/staff dispersed to wherever they may find a seat with the speaker standing in front of the stage. Due to the new arrangement students are now wearing shoes on our sacred gym floor, taking away from the tradition of never doing so in risk of tarnishing something which has been apart of the school for decades. This new format has taken away the community feel chapel once had and even more so the aura withheld by the sense of tradition. By signing this petition one is supporting the return of a sense of community in our family of around five hundred and returning to the way chapel had been held for decades, students on the main bleachers, faculty/staff on either side, and having the speaker in the middle of the floor.
