Old Business and New Business

Dr. Michele Moore advises the MUCEC

MU’s Council for Exceptional Children is a student organization that fundraises and advocates for individuals with special needs. The group traveled to Elkland and donated $600 worth of items to the Clark Wood Elementary School.

The Mansfield University Production of Les Miserables is this week in Straughn Hall. See it March 6, 7, and 8 at 7:30pm or Sunday, March 9 at 2:30pm.


North Hall has digitized all issues of The Flashlight from 1926 to 2010. But some issues are missing. If you have a missing issue please share it. Meanwhile, always follow current issues of the student newspaper at The Flashlight on Twitter or Facebook.

To raise money for the Concert Choir European Tour this summer, a ‘Dinner Concert’ is set for March 30th. Between courses at the Hamilton Club, the Chamber Singers will perform madrigals, folk songs, and other light music on the theme, “Spring into Summer with Love.”

TRiO makes MU proud, and here’s why.

Some town business to talk about. Annette’s Mansfield Agway will open by the end of March, across from AutoZone.

Former MU staff member Cyndi Compton has opened Sew & So on Wellsboro Street next to the Night and Day Cafe.

And congratulations to the Wellsboro Diner for making it into the 10 best classic diners in America.



Chancellor to Speak & Videos Galore

PASSHE  Chancellor John Cavanaugh and his wife, Christine,  will speak on “Next Generation Leadership,” Thursday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in Straughn.


Representative Matt Baker (R-Wellsboro) is looking ahead.  He’s introduced a bill that would earmark rents and royalties from any future gas or oil wells on PASSHE campuses to help pay for building repair projects.  The measure would divide gas and oil rents and royalties on PASSHE owned property.  Sixty percent would go to the university hosting the wells.  The money would be used for building and energy conservation projects.  Forty percent would be allocated to universities that don’t host gas wells.


One of the great things about working at MU is continually discovering the energy and talents of our students.  Music major  Glen DeGeorge recently sent me this video the guys produced of a snowy trip to area windmills.  The video’s fun and the music is great.    Glen  and Corey Rader are members of the band Portland Senator and have a new album coming out.  Visit their website  and find out the origin of the band’s name.


Speaking of music,  just came across the Spirit and Pride of  Pennsylvania MU  Marching Band site.


And speaking of online, the student newspaper, The Flashlight, is now online.


Here’s a video, the “MU NJ Happy Hour,”  Bill Cammon made for fellow  New Jersey alumni  anticipation of their next reunion.  These folks didn’t invent partying, but it sure looks like they made inroads into the art of  fun and bonding.


Leona Kent, retired from Human Resources, sent this shot from her Florida  pad.  See how many ladies you can name.
