The Jewell Bucket List


The William Jewell College Senators of 2015-2016 have come up with a Jewell Bucket List that we wanted to share with our fellow students. This is a list that we developed throughout the beginning of the semester based on what we believe represents the shared little things involved with the Jewell Experience that everyone has throughout their time at Jewell. We feel that this list may give some good insight to first years trying to find their path still as well as give an opportunity for seniors to figure out what things on the list they still want to check off before their time is up.
