Friendship Sports International BOGO Weekend

Cornerstone University is a community that rallies around one another. We are also passionate about the greater community around us. That’s why we have partnered with Friendship Sports International (FSI) to put on a Buy One, Give One drive. For every item purchased, whether it’s a T-shirt, hat or pair of designer socks, FSI will donate one pair of socks to Mel Trotter Ministries, Degage or Matthew’s House. These three ministries will offer these to those in need during the cold winter months. Athletes will personally deliver these items and donate their time to these shelters.

Campus Map

We will have several open parking lots for you to conveniently park each day. Take a look at the campus map to see which lots will be available and where.
