MoMac

Lights… Camera… wait, you want this by WHEN?

An update from Dr. Mark Kerins, Faculty in Residence (FiR) for the Morrison-McGinnis Residential Community: As the academic year winds down, we’re still as busy as ever prepping for next year – lots to do before we head into the summer! Big news this week (as usual, news first posted via Twitter @MoMacRC) is that we now have a full complement of four Faculty Affiliates (FAs) on board for the fall, which was the last piece of our team to come together.

MoMac Attack

An update from Dr. Mark Kerins, Faculty in Residence (FiR) for the Morrison-McGinnis Residential Community: This is an exciting week for the Residential Commons system, with Wednesday’s housing expo giving students a chance to learn about the various RCs and then housing selection happening next Monday and Tuesday.

We put together a pretty cool [...]
