Lee University recently hosted Q Union, a national event with the theme “Create a Better Future.”
This experience featured three national speakers on simulcast, along with three Lee student speakers. The goal of this event was to educate, inspire and offer people of faith creative ways to respond to the difficult challenges facing campuses and communities.
Q Union allowed Lee to join with thousands of Christians on college campuses and in cities throughout the United States.
“We are fortunate to be part of this national event to help our students explore how they can bring hope and leadership on our campus and beyond in challenging times,” said Dr. Mike Hayes, vice president for student development.
The first national speaker was Malcolm Gladwell, author and journalist, with a message titled, “Talk to Strangers.”
Rebekah Lyons, author and speaker, then encouraged attendees to, “Establish Daily Rhythms.”
The last national speaker, pastor and author Francis Chan, spoke on how to “Build True Community.”
“I was really challenged this year to look how I am setting myself up for the future,” said Matt Smolen, junior biology major at Lee. “This came in many ways, from looking inside of myself, to building a strong community around me. I believe Q Union pushed me, and all of the other student leaders in that room, to start building lifelong systems that can create a better future for many years to come.” 
 Lee University student speakers took the stage of Pangle Hall to share on three topics. Randyl Music, a senior English major, spoke on “Internal Resistance.” Sarah Sajja, a senior biology major, asked “Who’s in Your Circle?” Matthew Samples, a communication studies senior, addressed the “Habit of Unlearning.”
