“Better Together Day” is an opportunity for students, faculty and staff from a variety of beliefs to bridge gaps across their differences, according to Better Together Day’s event Facebook page.

Students of different religions, cultures and spiritual beliefs are encouraged to come out to the Plaza and partake in the event by sitting down with other students and getting to know each other.

The event will feature free coffee and tea, as well as games and a photo booth.

Better Together Day at CSU is a part of a nationwide project started by the Interfaith Youth Core, a national nonprofit that works towards brining people of different faiths, worldviews and traditions together. The IFYC chose the color blue to represent this year’s Better Together Day.

This event aims to enlarge the shared multi-faith and belief family tree at CSU, according to Better Together Day’s event Facebook page. Its goal is for people to see that being different is a good thing.
