1. How would I find my way around MUN?
The staff at Answers are there to assist students and help them find their way during their university days. Tell your students not to be afraid to ask questions, to stay calm and to ask for help. Encourage them to explore the campus. Remember...getting lost is the first step to finding their way. If it’s raining...go underground through Memorial’s extensive Munnel system (underground tunnels). [back to top]
