MMU - February 17, 2014

Author: Susan Good

Dear NDLS,

Welcome back from your House of Cards Netflix cave. I’m betting a third of you finished season 2, another third are halfway in, and the remaining third of you just got into the show. Awesome weekend. 48-hours of Kevin-Spacey-style domination is the key to career success (CDO: feel free to use in future event themes).

We don’t have a lot of events this week, but in the words of Spacey:

…onward to events!
Etiquette Dinner: The second annual etiquette dinner is Monday, February 24 from 6:00-8:00 in the new Morris Inn Ballroom. Come learn the proper way to eat so you don’t embarrass yourself in professional situations. The cost is only $10. RSVP at this link by Friday, February 21.


Congratulations 3L Mens Basketball Intramural Team! Congrats to Kevin Battle, Henry Ciocca, Bryan Pasciak, Alex Shadley, Reid Smith, Joe Spina, and Charles Vargo for their win last night securing their place in the finals. Come out and root them on in the finals this Thursday at 7:30 pm in the Joyce Center.
