Rocking at the Hut, Laughing with Black

If you’re old enough, you remember when The Hut was the main hangout for students.  Now, after 40 years of other uses, it  has re-opened. . . as a hangout for students.  It’s completely remodeled with new carpet, curtains, lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system, pool table, furniture and food court.  The  renovation was joint collaboration of Student Activities and the Student Government Association.  After the ribbon cutting, SGA President Will Brown, Committee on Finance Chair Kris Dumchak and MU President Maravene Loeschke gathered on stage to “rock out” in celebration of the re-opening.  In the near future, we’ll do a video tour of The Hut with Student Activities Director Steve Plesac.

Comedian Lewis Black kicked off his “In God We Rust Tour at MU last night to a sold-out audience in Straughn.  Nothing he said can be repeated here, but Adam Murtland did catch the angry man smiling.

Our graphic artist Sheran Lawton took a walk during last Friday’s storm, camera in hand, and captured not only the snowy beauty of our area but also students who seemed to enjoy the winter wonderland.

It was so beautiful out Friday morning that I grabbed my camera and wandered the campus  until I bumped into Elisa Morales Heras, who is here for a year from Spain.
