SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — The Shepherd University Stubblefield Institute Civility Club hosted “Bowling Through Barriers” on February 9, an evening designed to help attendees participate in open communication on important topics.

Students and Stubblefield Institute board members and staff first enjoyed a meal together. After dinner, Civility Club President Chloe Bailey organized attendees into groups so students could engage with people not inside their typical circle of acquaintances. The goal of the evening was to teach students how to work with one another even when they don’t share commonalities of friendship.

While bowling, the teams discussed their thoughts about campus life. They shared their ideas for social action on campus. Issues of importance included accessibility, mental health, campus safety, and fundraising to sustain student groups.
