Radin, Radin, Radin!
If you missed the big concert, one of the major things SGA did, along with
CAC, was bring Josh Radin to Lehman stage. It drew nearly 500 people for
a fun evening of music. Big thanks to Doug Wandersee for his epic

Hadestown, a folk opera by Anais Mitchell, along with various other
In our continuing efforts to boost school spirit, we’ve been throwing
t-shirts at basketball and volleyball games, as well as a raffle at half
time for free EMU gear for students (special thanks to Sarah Beck and Matt
Dean). We also organized a food drive to benefit Patchwork Pantry–thanks
to Peyton Erb for her leadership.
Last Tuesday was the Join a Club Party in Common Grounds, where the USO
(Union of Student Organizations) created a space for clubs to get their
word out and encourage students to join. We hope this spring gathering of
clubs can be a annual event.
