20th Anniversary Anthology
We celebrated the university's 20th anniversary of SUA Aliso Viejo campus in 2021. As a way to commemorate, students and alumni have created an anthology.
Not Cancelled 2020
"This exhibit documents a singular moment in the life of the community of Humanities students at Soka University of America. This community possesses shared experiences but no predefined boundary. Its identity does not stem from credits and rosters, and the circumstance of the epidemic revealed this clearly enough. The call for submissions invited current Soka students and alumni to formulate or record their experience of the 2020 shut down, and do so with a view to seek out a possibility of transformation through disruption, frustration and loss. When the epidemic descended, we did not know how long it would last. Now that it has lasted, we doubt it will ever leave. The mark will stay with us. This exhibit captures the singular moods, untold tensions and furtive epiphanies that occurred between these two extremes. Not everything can be cancelled."
Aflame and Unafraid
"Inspired by Amanda Gorman's poem, “The Hill We Climb,” join us for a reading and community dialogue to reflect on Gorman’s calls to action and the power of poetry to ignite and shape national conversations. Gorman’s poem was a moving piece and an influential moment that has kept timely topics at the forefront of national conversations, such as the impact of arts education, the power of youth, global citizenship, the courage to act, and more. These events took place February 23-24, 2021. "
"SUAxTalks is an event inspired by Tedx Talks, developed by SUA Residential Life. SUA seniors have abundant experiences and stories to share including expansive knowledge of their Capstone topic. Seniors give powerful talks 11 minutes in length or shorter that spread ideas and generate conversation. SUAxTalks 2015 was held on May 6, 2015 from 5-7pm in Pauling Hall 216. The theme was The Value Creative Spark."
