Hygiene Product Collection Drive – Child Abuse Awareness Month

BLSA and PAD are collecting toiletries for Child Abuse Awareness Month. These toiletries will go to CASA and other places that deal with children & teens in need. These items can be: toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, deodorant (women & men), powder, body wash (women/men), soap, shampoo (women/men), and lotion.

Donation Boxes will be in the atrium through next Friday, April 25.

Also we are still collecting Box Tops for Education. The collection box will be out as well and will be on the ABA table by the SBA office.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Please make the effort to contribute to this worthy cause!

Box Tops for Education

The Black Law Student Association is collecting Box Tops for Education for a local school! Participating schools turn in these Box Tops to earn credits towards purchasing classroom supplies and upgrading technology within the school. Box Tops can be found on any General Mills Product, Avery Brand office supplies, Ziploc Storage products, Scott Brand Tissue, and more.

For more information on where box tops can be found visits: Click Here

There is a collection box for the Box Tops on the ABA Table in front of the SBA office. Box Tops will be collected through Friday, April 25.

We hope that Faculty, Staff, and Students will participate in our final collection for the 2013/14 school year.


Thank you for completing LSSSE!

The response rate by class is very close with the 1L class on top by 2 points.

•  1L = 54.5% (Great job!)

•  2L = 52.3%

•  3L = 52.2%

If you would still like to complete the survey, it will remain open until April 30th.  Results will be analyzed and shared over the next few months.  In the meantime, please be on the lookout for an invitation to the new Valparaiso University Law Career Services Management System (CSM) and the new Student/Alumni Directory.  These are just a few of the changes that are being made based on the feedback received from our students.
