Mountie Minute for Friday, May 20, 2022

New Student Orientation Parking
Posted by Judith Brayer

The first on-campus New Student Orientation will take place this Friday and Saturday.  We are so happy to be able to again host our on-campus sessions this summer.  Students and their guests will be utilizing the "D" lot for parking so we are kindly asking that employees not use this lot on Friday, May 20, 2022.  Let's show our great Mountie Spirit this weekend!

MU Garden Club Plant Sale
Posted by Maegen Borzok

The Garden Club still has plants!! We have tomatoes (slicers, romas, cherries), peppers (bell, sweet, and hot), and herbs. The tomatoes are on the smaller side but will flourish with some love once planted in your porch pot or garden. Tomatoes and peppers are $4 for a six pack ($1 for smaller quantities). You can mix and match types. Herbs are $2 per pot or 3 for $5.

We also have house plants of different varieties (spider plants, aloe plants, jade plants, snake plants). Prices vary by size but range from $2-$10.

Money raised goes directly to providing scholarship opportunities for our students. Please reach out to club advisor Maegen Borzok with any questions or if you are interested. 


Electrical Shutdown ~ 5/23
Posted by Donna Emmick

On Monday, May 23rd, there will be a partial electrical shutdown on campus from 5 AM until 5 PM.  The outage is necessary to complete testing of the electrical system due to damage from a recent utility power outage. It is important to do the testing as soon as possible so that repairs to the system can be made in a timely manner to prevent further issues. 
Buildings that will be without power are as follows: Alumni, Belknap, Retan, Elliott, Straughn, North Hall, South Hall, Memorial, and The Hut.
Buildings that will have power during the partial shutdown are: Grant, Allen, Butler, Field House, Decker, all Residence Halls, Doane, KFC, and Manser.
All online IT resources will still be available during the outage (Desire2Learn, Student Self-Service, Office 365, SAP, etc.)
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at x4913.
