September 2018 Newsletter
Grounded in Hope, Built on Community
Welcome back friends! Welcome to our new incoming students! We hope that you all had a great summer filled with catching up on sleep, vacationing, and fun. ASU definitely had a lot of fun bonding over the summer by having a board retreat, affiliate retreat, volunteering, taking some stylish pictures, and welcoming in the first year students by tabling for MCAE Kick-Off Info Fair and Explore U during Welcome Week! Don't worry if you missed us, we will be tabling again for SUA's Minneapolis Activities Fair on Wednesday, September 12th from 12PM-4PM. Come check out our table in the front Plaza of Memorial Union to see how else you can get involved in our community!
Afraid of missing us again? No problem! All of our board members have office hours available for the fall semester (below). The ASU room (MU 226) is open Mon-Fri from 9AM-5PM.
Come kick-off the new year with us at the Back to School BBQ event this Friday, September 7th from 5PM-9PM. We're teaming up with PDP, CASA, HMSA, DPO, PSA, and Viivncaus to co-host this event to give you all the opportunity to make new connections with our current general audience members and newcomers. Let's not forget about the free food we will be providing because food is important and we want to start off the year on a good note!
Not only did we welcome the incoming students, but we also welcomed 20 affiliates for the 2018-2019 school year! Check them out below.
