The cover of the Fall/Winter '22 "Crossroads" magazine features part of a new mural designed by Rachel Holderman '18 for the east wall outside the Student Life suite in the University Commons. EMU first-years contributed to the painting during their orientation of fall '22 and Holderman finished the project shortly after.
