Help your seniors help UDM

Please encourage your seniors to consider participating in the Senior Class Gift campaign, which has already raised $2,000. The money raised will be used to renovate a study area in the McNichols Campus Library. There are multiple events scheduled for early May, including a Tigers game, a trip to Dave & Buster’s, a service opportunity and the Senior Class Dinner. Encourage your senior students to attend the events and make a gift!

Student Senate will be sponsoring the "Everything Drive," from Monday, April 25 until Saturday, April 30 at the rock near the West Quad Residence Hall. Any type of donation is accepted, from clothes to televisions, which will go to St. Vincent De Paul in Detroit. For more information, contact UDM's Student Senate by email.
