Interested in seeing recently created artwork while sipping on light refreshments? The All Student Art Show’s opening reception will be held April 17 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Viterbo University Gallery on the third floor of the Fine Arts Center.
“Anyone is allowed to visit our gallery, and every student is allowed to submit artwork to the show, regardless of major,” said Joseph Miller, assistant professor of art. “The show runs April 17 – May 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week while classes are in session.”
“Throughout the year, the gallery features the work of students and faculty, as well as the work of regionally and nationally known artists and graphic designers,” according to the Viterbo University gallery’s website.
“Students and faculty should consider attending the All Student Art Show to see and explore the wonderful artwork that is being made by students and faculty at Viterbo,” Miller said. “Students and faculty will have the opportunity to connect with artists, designers and art faculty at the reception.”
In addition to this year’s art show, the art department will also be self-publishing a second edition of the All Student Show catalog, which features work from the exhibit. “We produce an edition of 50 catalogs,” Miller told Lumen. “Each student participant receives a copy and dedicated art students help edit, photograph, design, print and bind this edition. All production is done in-house.”
Non-student participants can also purchase a copy of the All Student Show catalog, either in person or through shipping. “Shipping is free, and all proceeds will go to future All Student Show catalog publications,” said Miller.
Selections from the All Student Art Show will also be available on the art department’s blog at The current blog features selec¬tions and information from the 2012 show, including a video tour of the Viterbo University Gallery, along with several short films and a full length documentary by Jasper Duberry.
“Duberry was featured on La Crosse’s Channel 19 TV talking about the 2012 show, and the YouTube video of this interview can be found on the department’s blog as well,” Miller said.

Franny’s to become Einstein Bros. Bagels for upcoming school year

By Jessica Hartling
Campus Life Assistant Editor

Large changes are coming to Franny’s, the campus coffee shop located next to the library, over this upcoming summer. While students and faculty begin to the feel the stress of the semester coming to a close, the staff at Franny’s is getting more excited.
Over the summer, Franny’s will be converted into Einstein Bros. Bagels at Franny’s (EBB), a brand under Einstein Noah Restaurant Group. According to their website, EBB offers “a diverse menu rang¬ing from gourmet, to-go coffee and specialty drinks to baked goods, salads, made-to-order sandwiches and decadent desserts.”
“I think that with EBB coming in that we will become even busier,” Carly Penshorn, senior sociology major from Reedsburg, Wis., told Lumen. Penshorn is a barista at Franny’s. “The variety and options for food that EBB will bring I feel will draw in more students and faculty every day.”
Working at Franny’s for seven years, Karen Steinhoff is excited for the changes to come. “Each year Franny’s gets busier and busier. I believe that EBB will bring in more people as well,” Steinhoff told Lumen.
With the changing of Franny’s into EBB also comes a change of hours it will be open. “We will now be open until 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, which will be really nice,” Penshorn said.
Other changes to Franny’s beyond its name and menu is the price of items on the menu. “It will be more expensive than what Franny’s costs now, but the quality will be well worth it,” Penshorn said.
Kristina Bowman , freshman dietetics major from Gurnee, Ill., is looking forward to the new changes to come to Franny’s. “When I saw the email that got sent out to students about the meal plan changes and saw that Franny’s was turning into EBB, I was excited,” Bowman told Lumen. “I feel that this will be a good change on campus and that a lot of people will take advantage of EBB.”
“I am excited about EBB coming to Viterbo, especially with their selection and the fact they are bringing iced-drinks,” Steinhoff said. “We go through a large amount of bagels every day. It will be nice to have fresh bagels for students and staff to eat, as well as maintaining a nice hangout spot.”
For those who would like to try EBB before fall, UW-La Crosse has an EBB located on their campus in the Cartwright Center.

Get your wands ready

With the first book of the Harry Potter series, “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” being released in 1998, most Viterbo students grew up with the famed fictional charac¬ters.
For five days, Viterbo students will get to break out their Harry Potter wisdom, costumes and nerdiness for VU After Dark, Honors Club and Quidditch Club’s collab¬orative week-long event.
Directly following Easter break from April 2-6, students are in¬vited to participate and compete in a variety of events that will earn points for the respective houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
From Tuesday to Friday, there will be a trivia question posted on Com¬munications. Answering correctly will gain participants House Points.
Every day there will also be two Horcruxes to hunt down on cam¬pus. The first clue will be located in the Hawk’s Nest movie room on the VU After Dark bulletin board. Solve and follow the clues to find the Horcruxes. Clues should be left up for all participants throughout the day; however the first person to find the hidden Horcruxes will bring them in to the Hawk’s Nest to claim points for their house. Win¬ners of the Horcrux hunt will also be put into a drawing to win the official sorting hat.
On Wednesday and Thursday, movie nights will be hosted in the Hawk’s Nest movie room. Come and vote for your favorite Harry Potter movie to watch and enjoy some popcorn. Students will receive House Points just by enjoying a movie.
Friday will bring a feast in the “Great Hall.” Dine in the Cafeteria from 4:45-6 p.m. and enjoy spe¬cial treats, music and decorations themed around the book series. Hogwarts attire is strongly en¬couraged so that students can get creative and earn more points for their Houses.
All of the week-long activities lead up to the grand finale: the Quidditch World Cup. Located in the Mathy Center, students will compete at 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, for their respective houses. All students are welcome to come cheer on the players in the tourna¬ment-style matches. Wizard-world treats such as licorice wands and Bertie-Bott’s Every Flavor Beans will be served as well.
For those who would like to participate and earn points for their houses, please go to, or email with name and house.

Environmental studies minor changed to sustainability minor

By Andrea Matson
Contributing Reporter

If you look for the environmen¬tal studies minor in the 2013-2014 course catalog, it won’t be there. Instead students will find environ¬mental science and sustainability listed under the available minors students can enroll in.
The current course catalog de¬scribes the environmental stud¬ies minor as “designed to help students appreciate the diversity and complexity of current environ¬mental issues” and is intended for students of any major. The envi-ronmental studies minor is inter¬disciplinary and offers courses not only in sciences such as biology and chemistry but classes in literature, philosophy and religion. Students are required to take at least two courses from the social sciences or humanities.
Come fall this will all change. Instead of an environmental studies minor to choose there will be an environmental science minor. This new minor will be different than its predecessor said Christopher Iremonger, professor of natural sciences and head of environmen¬tal studies. The minor “is based in biology [and] will not be interdisci¬plinary.”
The environmental science minor will be offered to complement those science majors which also require a minor and will add an additional six to nine credits outside of what is required for students’ majors.
The lack of interdisciplinary courses offered could pose prob¬lems for non-science based majors because courses like English 204, Environmental Literature, or Phi¬losophy 302, Environmental Ethics, will not count toward the minor.
Iremonger said “it wouldn’t be easy, but do-able, for non-science majors to minor in environmental science.” He noted that education majors would more easily take up the new minor because they typically take more general science education courses, but it would be difficult for most students.
Students who want an environ¬mental studies minor still have op¬tions. The minor is not completely disappearing, stated Iremonger, but “morphing into the sustainability’s minor.”
The reason behind the change is that the administration wanted to add a minor to accompany the sustainability major. However, the sustainability minor overlapped the environmental studies minor in so many ways that it was decided to eliminate the environmental studies minor and just have the sustainabil¬ity minor.
Whereas the environmental sci¬ence minor will be for mostly sci¬ence majors thesustainability minor will be for students of any major. Sister Lucy Slinger, FSPA, professor and Sustainability Degree Coordi¬nator, said that the sustainability minor “provides students with a set of unique credentials for the job market, [because] every field is looking for people with experience in sustainability.”
Students will notice some differ¬ences between the minors. The sus¬tainability minor has a broader em¬phasis and doesn’t focus as much on science. Also, the environmental studies minor has a requirement of 20-25 credits where the sustainabil¬ity minor has a requirement of 15.
Sister Lucy explained that the Sustainability minor looks beyond just “natural resources but works with people and resources to pro¬mote a sustainable future.”
However, there are also many courses that do overlap. Courses such as American Environmental History, Environmental Spiritual¬ity, and others count towards both minors.
Students currently in the envi¬ronmental studies minor will not be affected by the addition of the sustainability minor or the environ¬mental science minor. According to Iremonger the only change students may experience is that ENVS 400, Seminar on the Environment, will no longer be offered.
The course was originally de¬signed as a three hour block once a week, but students had difficulty fitting it into their schedules. Start¬ing in the fall, students will take ENVS 325, Environmental Sustain¬ability as a replacement course.

Students volunteer their time over spring break

By Kim Worblewski

Viterbo students returned from a recent spring break service trip to Cincinnati, Ohio, that inspired them to grow as individuals and al¬lowed them to make a difference in people’s lives. “Students came back [from the trip] excited and wanting to change the world” said Emilio Alvarez, assistant director of Cam¬pus Ministry, who helped organize and chaperone the trip.
Thirteen students and three chaperones went on the service trip. The students worked throughout the break, as they left on Sunday, March 3 for Cincinnati and vol¬unteered from Monday, March 4 through Thursday, March 7, leaving Friday, March 8 to return home. The trip was organized by Campus Ministry and students worked with the Franciscans Sisters for the Poor.
The students volunteered for numerous nonprofit organizations around Cincinnati. Working to feed the hungry and helping out chil¬dren and adults with disabilities. They also made breakfast for peo¬ple staying at the Ronald McDonald house, an organization that assists sick children; worked at an after school program for children who have no place to go after school hours; and assisted nonprofits with painting houses.
Mixing over 600 gallons of paint to send around the world was another activity students worked on. The students aided Matthew 25 Ministries with separating paint do¬nated to the organization. The paint will be used to paint houses around the world.
The goal of the trip was to let the students “encounter a new environ¬ment” and “challenge them to see beyond their own worldviews,” Alvarez said. The students were also given the chance to “experi¬ence poverty and were challenged to be good servant leaders.”
“Throughout the week, our group served at several organizations and social service agencies throughout the area and truly was provided a culturally diverse experience,” Sara Meyer, a junior social work major, who went on the trip, said. “This trip was a wonderful opportunity for students [to] experience changes of pace, perspective, and heart.”
“I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything,” Meyer said. “Since returning home, I’ve been inspired and motivated to continue serv¬ing in my community and hope that I can continue to share what I learned with others.”
Sam Homp, a senior ministry major, said that the trip was fun, but challenging. “It’s a different en¬vironment,” he said. He explained that the students had to work with each other as well as with people from the organizations to help those in need in places new and unfamil¬iar to the volunteers.
Homp said that his most memo¬rable moment from the trip was helping out kids at an inner-city after school program. “We hung out [with the kids] and tried to be a fun, positive influence,” he explained. Along with helping students with their homework assignments, volunteers participated in activi¬ties such as arts and crafts, push-up contests, playing games and free-style rap.
Homp said that his only regrets about the trip are that he wishes he could have had more interaction with those he was helping out and that he could have stayed longer to assist those in need.
Alvarez explained that Campus Ministry hopes to organize two service trips next year over Spring Break. For one of the trips, he plans on going back to Cincinnati. He also hopes to increase the number of people that can go on the trip to 25.
Michael Churchill, a sophomore nursing major, said that he is not able to travel a lot, so the oppor¬tunity to travel to a place he had never been to before was a blessing. “I wanted to give back,” he added, saying that he loves helping people out.
The service trips have been great opportunities for him to meet people as well as experience new things, Churchill said. He explained that his favorite part of the trip was when a speaker talked about how he had been homeless for two years. “It opened my eyes to the homeless world,” Churchill said, “how prominent it is and what we can do in our own community to help.”
“It’s exciting to see students see new experiences and watch them grow from it” Alvarez said of the service trips.

Touchstone provides an outlet for creativity

By Cassidy Mayberry
Contributing Reporter

Aphrodite, goddess of love uses, “manipulation, desire and emotions” to guide the actions of people, but Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, uses “logic and straight¬forwardness,” stated senior cos¬tume designer Rachel Wahl. These ideas paired with of visual research are what guided this member of the theater department to create the colors, textures and shapes of the goddesses’ costumes for the Greek tragedy “Hippolytus,” only in Touchstone magazine can you find photos of these costumes alongside a series of literary pieces and other art works.
On Wednesday, April 3 from 6-9 p.m., Viterbo students and commu¬nity members will be celebrate the release of the Touchstone maga¬zine will be held in the back of the library near Robers Conference room and food an beverages will be served.
Touchstone is a student created magazine that provides a creative outlet for the publication of art, po¬etry and prose. Its mission, accord¬ing to the Touchstone website, is to contribute to and praise the creative thinking of the Viterbo community. It also provides a learning opportu¬nity for students to assemble a pro¬fessionally published journal that expresses the culture and education of Viterbo University.
Joycelyn Fish, co-literary editor of Touchstone and senior organiza¬tional communications major from Reedsburg, Wis., expressed her passion for the magazine as being “a place where students are free to display their talents and share them with the rest of the Viterbo commu¬nity. We have so many unique and creative individuals on campus” she said, “and it provides them an¬other outlet to express themselves through their work.”
Touchstone received student submissions until the middle February. The literary portion of the magazine received 61 submis¬sions. Fish stated this number was “the most in recent history.” One of her duties as a member of the Touchstone staff, in addition to col¬lecting literary pieces, assisting in editing content and advertising the launch of the magazine, is visiting classrooms to promote and gather submission. Twenty-four different student authors entered submis¬sions to the magazine’s staff, and 15 of the pieces were accepted to be published.
Molly Grosskreutz, co-literary Ed¬itor of Touchstone and senior liberal studies major, helps in the process of soliciting, selecting and editing literary submissions. Her favorite part of working as a member of the Touchstone staff is “seeing the range of work students are capable of,” Grosskreutz said.
The magazine also features a number of student art works rang¬ing from paintings and drawings to sculptures and ceramics.
Danielle Stark, Touchstone maga¬zine’s co-art editor and photogra¬pher, and senior studio art major, worked on advertising, gathering the submissions, judging the art entries and photographing and editing the accepted pieces. She was also responsible for helping with decisions on the layout and design of the magazine and will be helping with the installation of the gallery in the library before the release celebration. More than 100 student submissions were made to the art side of the magazine, and around 45 pieces were accepted here.
During the release party the art pieces published in the 2013 Touchstone will be featured and the authors will read their literary pieces.
Also, the Touchstone website will be unveiled and launched during the release celebration. The website is tailored to represent the current edition of Touchstone and features all of the art and literature pieces contained in the magazine. The online version also features original music and videos submitted by students.
“This edition of Touchstone is going to be different from past years,” Stark said. “We are inter¬mingling the art and literary pieces, and we are playing the pieces off of each other. We have also decided to pick pieces as “editor’s choices” to put a little more emphasis on the pieces that we believed were outstanding.”
Fish also commented on the changes made to this year’s install¬ment of Touchstone. “This year marks a new layout and design for the magazine, making it more dynamic, sustainable and collabora¬tive. It truly molds the two sides of the magazine [literary and art] into one cohesive piece for the entire Viterbo community to enjoy.”

Voice your opinion by voting for next year’s SGA members

By Janelle Mathews

The SGA (Student Government Association) election for the upcom¬ing school year will take place April 8-11. Nomination forms came out March 18, and students can only nominate themselves. The com¬pleted nomination forms, including 25 signatures of current students, are due April 2.
The positions include two repre¬sentatives from each class: senior, junior, sophomore and freshmen. The freshmen representatives will be elected at a later date. Also, eight at-large representatives, one commuter representative and one non-traditional student representa¬tive will be elected. The student body votes for all of these positions along with the position of SGA President.
Other officer positions including the vice-president, secretary, public relations and parliamentarian are “appointed by next year’s SGA President at their first meeting in early May and need to be approved by two-thirds of the SGA” said Matt Krueger, current SGA Presi¬dent.
The only remaining position is the business manager who has to go through an application and interview process because it is a paid position and “we feel it takes a lot more time and effort,” Krueger said.
Krueger believes that this year’s SGA has done a lot of good for Viterbo, explaining, “This year’s SGA had a tough but very success¬ful year because the past three years we had the same president and vice-president, so there was a lot of turnover.”
Throughout this year, the SGA “has been very involved with food service on campus, and we have created posters related to printing costs to let people know where their money is going,” Krueger said.
Krueger stressed the fact that “SGA is really about the student’s voice being heard so that is why it is so important to vote.”
Voting for the SGA election will be handled by Emilio Alvarez, As¬sistant Director of Campus Minis¬try, and ballots can be cast online when the polls are open from April 8-11.
Voting tables with computers will also be available April 8-11 in the student union, cafeteria and Murphy lobby for students’ conve¬nience.

St. Catherine’s Medal winners announced

By Joycelyn Fish
Campus Life Editor

Three outstanding Viterbo stu¬dents received the St. Catherine’s Medal on Monday, March 25 during the Student Leader Recognition dinner in the Fine Arts Center lobby. Emily Aerts, Kelsey Pruitt and Dani Templin were chosen based on their dedication to their Catholic education and Viterbo’s values. They have also demonstrat¬ed leadership, serving Viterbo and its extended community and are a role model in every way according to Kristen Gabriel who organized the St. Catherine’s Medals.

Emily Aerts
Emily Aerts is a senior social work major. According to Deb Daehn Zellmer, head of the social work program, who nominiated Aerts, “Emily is mature, responsible and very dedicated to the profession of social work striving to promote hu¬man and community well-being.”
Daehn Zellmer also expressed her appreciation for Emily’s humility and intelligence. Aerts’ dedication to all aspects of Viterbo including Social Work Club, Resdience Hall Council, Campus Ministry, Fine Arts Center usher and spending multiple spring breaks at the Chey¬enne River Youth Project in Eagle Butte, S.D., have made her a strong figure on campus Daehn Zellmer.
“She is a strong witness to Fran¬ciscan values she is hospitable to all, committed to achieving a more just society through service, always acts with integrity and honesty, uti¬lizes her God-given gifts to do good and thus is a good steward and leads a contemplative life where she sees the goodness in others, even those who come from very disad¬vantaged circumstances,” Daehn Zellmer stated.
Aerts continually looks for ex¬periences that challenge and build on her skills. An internship as an AmericCorps volunteer work¬ing with homeless youth and an education practium at the Hmong Cultural and Community Center have ignited her passion for social justice even more. “What has unfolded is a remark¬able young woman poised to do a great deal of good for society,” Daehn Zellmer added.

Kelsey Pruitt
“She is very proud of her Catholic faith and involvement and is a su¬perb role model for other students here at Viterbo University,” Dodie Marriott, administrative assistant for Residence Life, stated about Kelsey Pruitt, a senior nursing major.
Marriott also commented on Pruitt’s genuine and compassionate nature, emphasizing Pruitt’s abil¬ity to live and breathe her values with her sound judgment, listening skills, empathy and willingness to go above and beyond the expected.
Pruitt has been a resident assistant and peer advisoer during the past three years and currently serves as Lumen’s business manager. In addi¬tion, Pruitt has also taken time out of her busy schedule to volunteer at the Warming Shelter, the Salva¬tion Army and spring break service trips.
“As far as faithful service is con¬cerned, Pruitt tries to get to the core of the individual and help meet basic human needs as necessary,” Marriot wrote. “She sees the needs of the less fortunate and works to find ways to help or serve them.
“Regarding ethical leadership, Kelsey strives to make decisions that are in the best interest of every¬one involved — institution or per¬son,” Marriott added. “She knows right from wrong; she knows how to balance and prioritize important issues; she knows how to find those in need and work to help them.”

Dani Templin
As a member of the Viterbo women’s basketball team, Dani Templin, a senior visual commu¬nications major, has been able to serve Viterbo on and off the court explained Bobbi Vandenberg, head women’s basketball coach.
Templin has been captain for women’s basketball for three sea¬sons, leading by working hard and setting the example for her team¬mates. As a team member, Tem¬plin has been involved in various community service projects while still finding time to tutor at the Aca¬demic Resource Center and serving as the sports editor for Lumen.
“Dani often leads our pre-game prayers, and they are very heartfelt and inspirational,” Vandenberg added. “Dani has had some tough times while at Viterbo, but during those times, she has always men¬tioned that prayer will help her through.”
Templin also respects and cares for everyone around her. She en¬courages and listens to others, and her upbeat and positive personality makes her a favorite for the chil¬dren involved in camps and clinics.
Vandenberg expressed her ap¬preciaiton for Templin’s ability to step up when needed over her four year basketball career. Templin ended up playing every position on the basketball floor adapting her skills to each position. She was also named to the All-Conference team every season. “Dani sees that the team is more important than the individual,” Vandenberg stated. “She is an extremely talented, yet humble person.”

Bald is beautiful

By Joycelyn Fish
Campus Life Editor
Every three minutes, some¬where in the world, a child is diagnosed with cancer. And one in five children diagnosed with cancer in Canada and the United States will not survive according to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
Alex Connor, a freshman theatre major with an emphasis in design from Rolling Meadows, Ill., hopes to take a step towards diminishing and even eliminating this startling statistic by shaving his head if he reaches his goal of raising $1,000 by March 9.
“I have had longer hair since sixth grade,” Connor told Lumen. “Hair is nothing. It regrows. I wish to show how insignificant something like hair is to life; life: something that most people take for granted.”
Connor is hosting a virtual fundraiser in conjunction with St. Baldrick’s Foundation. According to St. Baldrick’s website, money raised is distributed to laboratory research, clinical trials and finding cures at over 215 children’s hospi¬tals throughout the United States.
In 2012, volunteers who shaved their heads raised more than $30 million, resulting in over $100 mil¬lion for childhood cancer research grants since 2005.
“I don’t really hope to personally gain anything from this,” Connor explained. “This is about helping to advance the understanding of cancer and to help treat individuals who are suffering.”
“These children have lived far too short lives to have to suffer with cancer, and medical research to help prevent and cure cancer does require money,” Connor added.
Individuals interested in helping support Connor can visit www. and search “Alex Connor” to find his page. Even if he comes up short, Connor still plans on shaving his head.
“I hope to show that there is beau¬ty in bald, especially to children who lose their hair, that they are still just as beautiful without hair as they were with it,” Connor said.

Viterbo Night Live coming soon

By Tim Metzler
Online Editor
The next Improv Comedy Team show, titled, “Viterbo Night Live,” will be vastly different from every other event that has taken place on Viterbo’s campus during this school year, Jesse Mossholder, a VU After Dark (VUAD) programming assis¬tant and elementary education from La Crosse, Wis., told Lumen.
Viterbo Night Live will be a collab¬orative program, put on by VUAD and performed by the Viterbo Improv Comedy Team, at 9:00 PM on March 23. The location has yet to be determined.
“The show is meant to be simi¬lar to Whose Line is it Anyway?” Mossholder said. “But the show will be much more unique than that.”
“Apart from having some of the most talented and creative mem¬bers of this university entertain the student body, the show will be special because it will have live commercials,” Mossholder said.
“Any student-run club on Vit¬erbo’s campus has the opportunity to use one to three minutes during the show to perform a commercial they write on their own,” Moss¬holder said. “The idea is that clubs will use their time slot to creatively promote their club and try to recruit new members. However, there are only about six available three-min¬ute slots, so clubs need to act fast.”
Mossholder has sent multiple messages to all Viterbo club presi¬dents, but, by Lumen press time, only one club, the Student Activities Board (SAB), has officially con¬firmed that they are interested in performing a commercial.
“I think the commercial idea is brilliant,” Student Activities Board president, Marissa Kerschner, a psy-chology major from Coloma, Wis., said. “It sounds like a great way to see what other clubs on campus are doing.”
“As for SAB, we don’t have a set plan yet for what we’d like to do for a commercial, but we think the commercial slot will be a great opportunity to advertise Courtyard Carni and WOW Week,” Kerschner said.
Courtyard Carni is Viterbo’s an¬nual carnival to celebrate the end of the year. It takes place yearly on the Friday before finals week, which will be on May 4 this year. The usual location for the event is Assissi Courtyard, but, due to rain, it has also been held in the Mathy Center.
WOW Week (With Out Worries Week) is a series of events that take place during the week before finals week. It is capped off by Courtyard Carni. This year’s WOW Week will be put on through a collaborative effort between VUAD, SAB and Campus Ministry. The exact dates for the week are April 29-May 4.
“I hope our commercial is funny, but I’m really just excited to collab¬orate with other clubs on campus,” Kerschner said.
While Mossholder enjoys the prospect of providing clubs with a unique opportunity to advertise, his gaze is affixed upon a larger goal.
“One of my goals as a VUAD pro¬gramming assistant is to establish consistent collaboration with all of the clubs on campus,” Mossholder said.
“I want everyone to know that I am very open to collaborating with clubs,” Mossholder said. “I believe that we will experience more suc¬cess in creating a university-wide community if we collaborate.”
Clubs that collaborate with VUAD are likely to see an increase in atten¬dance, public visibility, save on cost and add potential to increase club membership, Mossholder said.
“For any club interested in secur¬ing a commercial slot or in collabo¬rating with VUAD, don’t wait for me to contact you,” Mossholder said. “There are limited slots. Con¬tact me as soon as possible, and I will respond quickly.”
Mossholder may be contacted via email at
