Many students, families, and friends gathered outside the steps of  Syracuse University's Hendricks Chapel Tuesday in honor of the victims of the tragic shooting that happened over the weekend in New Zealand. Hendricks Chapel Dean The Rev Brian Konkol greeted the audience with a powerful statement about not allowing fear to win.

WAER and Hendricks Chapel recently hosted an on-air, round-table discussion on Trevor Noah’s “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood”.  The book was selected for the 2018-19 Syracuse Reads Program, a shared reading initiative coordinated by the Provost’s Office that is part of the First-Year Experience for all new Syracuse University students.

Hosted by WAER General Manager Joe Lee and the Rev. Brian Konkol, dean of Hendricks Chapel, the round table conversation also included four first-year students—Bryan Hudnell, Dassy Kemedjio, Hadiya Lee and Allison Weiss—focusing on themes of identity and belonging, spirituality, and diversity and inclusion.
