Make Your Purple Mark

Make Your Purple Mark

There are many words used to describe Bishop’s. Intimate. Close-knit. Welcoming. Caring. However, the one word that is most used is community. Bishop’s is a community of approximately 2,900 students that come from nearly 70 countries. Each one contributes to our community in a variety of unique ways and each community member is appreciated for what they can contribute. Whether you are an artist, scientist, writer, athlete, actor, musician, researcher, volunteer, teacher, environmentalist, journalist, leader, activist, dancer, linguist, or something else, each one of our students has found a place on our campus and in our community and is making their Purple Mark. Have a look at how some of our students are leaving their Purple Mark and then ask yourself, “How Will You Make Your Purple Mark?”.
