Dr. Terry Piper
"While we'd all like to see Santa arrive with a large bag of money, I think that what I would wish for would be less tangible but nonetheless real: Mutual trust and respect among the entire university community – students, faculty, staff, administrators. Out of trust and respect grow harmony and commonality of purpose that will do more than money to set us on a safe and smooth course toward the future."
Dr. Doug May
"Apart from money and more students? At Christmas, it's nice to think of the positive things rather than the negative. I hope a positive spirit infects MUN and that we all gain a real appreciation of the contributions our colleagues make to the university and to the community."
Graduate Student, Philosophy
Vice-president of Graduate Students' Union
"A greater appreciation of what we already have at Memorial, which is a real sense of community. I have been at other universities that are much smaller and they don't have nearly the spirit MUN has."
Campaign Planning Group
"How about $1.7 million for the Opportunity Fund, to put us at our target of $25 million, so we can achieve all the goals of the fund-raising campaign. I'd like to throw in a thank you to all those who have helped so far."
Second year Arts, Psychology major
"Free tuition. And I'd like to see a lot more choices in the food court in the TSC."
