More than two years ago, SPU students initiated conversations with SPU administration about hosting Tent City 3. Those students were passionate about how hosting the encampment would be educational for our community and a tangible way of living out their mission. The camp will be at SPU January 21 – March 24, 2012.  “Hosting Tent City 3 is a concrete manifestation of Seattle Pacific University’s mission of engaging the culture and changing the world. It provides the SPU community a unique opportunity to care for — and learn from — our neighbor.”
