The Baptist Student Ministry held See You at the Pole Sept. 27 to pray for ASU, the country and other prayer requests.

"See you at the pole is a nationwide thing where schools across the nation: high schools, junior highs and colleges, go and meet at the flagpole and pray," Kayla Brown, junior, said. "We pray for our nation, our government, we pray our students and families."

The event was relocated from the flagpole in front of the Mayer Administration building to the BSM due to the constant rainfall on Wednesday.

"We wanted to stand up and pray for Angelo specifically," Hope Allen, senior and BSM President, said.

Students gathered before classes started to have breakfast, read from the Bible, sing songs of worship and break into small prayer groups.

"We wanted to stand up and pray for Angelo specifically," Allen said.

The BSM offers students the opportunity to study the Bible, meet like-minded believers and further their faith while attending ASU.

"My faith has grown ever since being here and getting involved with the BSM," Brown said.

The BSM held See You at the Pole to demonstrate their faith on campus in front of other students.

"We’re not ashamed of our faith," Allen said. "We’re proud of it and we don’t want to keep it to ourselves."
