#4 FALL = NEW HOODIE?

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you’re having a good (rainy) day! The last few days have been particularly warm, but still, fall is just around the corner. I personally can't wait to see the leaves turn yellow and orange, and for the temperature to become more comfortable. And with a few degrees less... It's the perfect opportunity to get a new hoodie! It's perfect timing, as MUSA has just shared the pre-order form to purchase hoodies and crewnecks with your college logo. See my previous email to get all the info! Today’s menu:

  1. Music & the brain experiment

  2. University-level committee

  3. The emerging leaders’ program is back for Fall 22!

  4. Free menstrual products pickup

  5. WalkSafe is recruiting
