Expect friends and colleagues to shower each other with kindness today, Day 4 of Memorial’s MUNdays, its yearly fall celebrations. Have a heart and take part in Kindness Friday. This year, help newly arrived Canadians dress for success by donating gently used professional clothing to Stuff-A-Bus.

A Marine Institute pickup will take place at 10 a.m.

            At Grenfell Campus, get spooked at SIFE Memorial’s Haunted House from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the GCSU Food Court. And from 1-2:30 p.m., enjoy an Introduction to Rug Hooking. From 1-4 p.m., students, faculty and staff showcase their music skills at the Rock Band Social – Battle of the Bands at The Backlot. Costumes – and rocking out – is encouraged.
