Annual celebrations set for Memorial

By Jeff Green

Memorial University of Newfoundland will crown its top loudmouth, pie some profs, raise money for local charities, and see its varsity athletes lace up for a battle of the sexes later this month as the university’s annual celebrations kick-off in fine style.

MUNdays 2008 runs from Oct. 21-25.

Celebrations take place under the banner of I Love MUNdays on the St. John’s campus, and I Fell for Grenfell at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, Memorial’s west coast campus in Corner Brook.

MUNdays highlights the diversity, ingenuity, excellence, kindness and community spirit that distinguish Memorial as one of the best post-secondary institutions in the world.

A full slate of events and activities are planned, encouraging students, staff, faculty and alumni to come together and celebrate Memorial.

“We want our entire university community to show a little heart and really embrace the Memorial experience by supporting and celebrating all the wonderful things that make our university such a terrific place to study and work,” said Jessica Clarke, I Love MUNdays co-ordinator with the Division of Marketing and Communications.
